The "Grand View" Story

Revised August 10, 2003

Additional Space / New Deacons

Within two short years, we had outgrown the building and were ready for phase two – the present auditorium. We had built up a nice building fund during the two years, and we launched a fund raiser within the congregation that raised about $45,000.00. This allowed us to complete the present addition with only a $25,000 00 indebtedness that was paid off within a couple of years. Larry Yurk resigned in mid October 1991, leaving us without a preacher until July of 1992. We again experienced leadership expansion with the addition of four more deacons: Alan Augspurger, Dan Bailey, Don Nelson and Richard Potter. At the same time, we completed the new building addition with the members doing the finish work.
