Utility Building:

Full of Vehicles!

Since earth-moving began Oct. 23, 2013, on construction of a utility building to house the Shenandoah District's Disaster Ministries vehicles and kit-preparation area, we have been awaiting this day! Just before Easter 2014, the vehicles were parked inside, and materials for the Church World Service kits and emergency clean-up buckets were moved to the new building. Landscaping still is in progress, but the building is serving its intended use! Thanks to all of the individuals and congregations that made the project successful!
