The church, which obtained the former funeral home about 15 years ago, addressed damage and completely refreshened and equipped the chapel area, as well as turn the back garage area into a recreational and food area. Sunday school and other meeting areas were arranged in the building. Funds for the work came from an inheritance to the church from the late Barbara Drummond Thorne, who will be honored with a plaque on the building. During a dedication service Sunday, her daughter, Beth Stukes, spoke and was hugged by interim youth minister Lincoln Moody as both became overcome with emotion. Church youth Sam Martin and Claudia Elliott read verses during the service while senior pastor Lloyd Stilley watches.
