Our Town: Zoar

Herald Correspondent

We are excited to share the news that the funding for Phase I for the new building in the Grove has been completed due to some very generous donations. Phase I includes the building itself, the concrete floor and inside walls for the bathrooms and kitchen. The fundraising now moves to Phase 2 which will include inside furnishings. Phase 3 will be for heating and cooling.  As soon as the remaining permits are obtained, it is hoped construction can begin. The fundraising continues and a grateful thanks to all who have contributed.

The church had the first in-person service Sunday morning since March 15.  Some of those attending expressed their gratitude for being together again.
