Building the New Sanctuary

The new building program for constructing a new sanctuary began in 1983 on a rainy Sunday per the historical archives. Dr. Robert Whitmire introduces the plans to the congregation.

Mrs. Jewell Patterson, wife of Rev. Arnold Patterson, discussed the history of the church from 1946 through the early eighties.

Greg Pope, the 16-year-old son of Butch and Linda Pope, discussed the new building program and its impact on future generations.

These images are from a laminated presentation created by Vivian Cranford. The next two images show the excavation for the new sanctuary.

Do you remember the Scout Hut? Do you remember those trees?

A beautiful night scene of the completed sanctuary.
