What is it?

July 2014 our community lost a dedicated friend and leader in Pastor Joe Bliffen.

Joe loved by doing, and boy did he love this church. From working on the leak in the roof to fixing the boiler for the umpteenth time, to patching plaster on the ceiling of the sanctuary, to painting every last window frame, to cutting the grass or trimming the bushes. Joe had a gift for handiwork and a servant’s heart that he poured into project after project to keep our church standing tall.

It’s with his spirit in mind that we are setting up a fund in his honor – The Joe Fund – to help us restore, not just patch, important sections of our church’s building, some of which Joe worked on and some he had hoped to work on one day.
