The church Website has a large drawing of the upper tower as a heading for all pages, but it takes up half the screen and cannot be scrolled out of the way.  Another perspective can be found on the Who We Are page, where the bells are mentioned.  But there is no history of the congregation and building.

A news article (1 July 2023) reports details of the major tower restoration project now in progress.

A news article (Jan.2023), reporting on the need to repair the bell tower, included a photo of the building.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Vanduzen bellfoundry.
