These are photos that I couldn't get into the Flame for the great day in our church when Bishop Lowry came to dedicate both the church building and the Parsonage.

This photo shows Bishop Lowry dedicating the church building with Tom Adams who served as Trustee and contact with the contractor for the Building Committee, Jane Bonner, Lay Leader, Rev. Harris Worcester,who inherited the new building and parsonage, Lowry and our District Superintendent, Dr. Jim Olney.

Moving to the parsonage dedication Bishop Lowry was joined by Catholic Bishop Pfeiffer who supported our church with money and other gifts when our church burned.

Bishop Pfeiffer gave a special sermonette using one of the Worcester's dogs to say that he wants to be the kind of person his dog thinks he is.

The bell choir gave a performance of several songs.

The FUMC choir provided special music for the dedication ceremony.
