Amost 60 years of snow, ice, and salt have taken their toll on Bethel's front porch posts. In trying to repair the wood around the posts, we discovered the supporting posts have started rusting and corroding. We are in process of talking to engineers and contractors to do the repair work.
We are thankful to those church members who were part of the construction of the building. They did a great job using steel beams to support the porch and ensuring the weight is distributed.
As bids come in, we welcome your contributions to help cover the costs. You can give to the "Special Gift" category on https://bethelsi.org/giving with a note that it is for building maintenance. You may also drop gifts into the giving box in the sanctuary.
