Church addition intended to be welcoming to all

By Bill Kirk

A "welcoming church" is specified in the mission statement for St. Paul's United Church of Christ, according to Pastor Susan Schneider-Adams.

Furthering the mission, the 147-member congregation approved late last month hiring a construction company to build a 36-by-40-foot addition to the church building, east of Ellsworth at the intersection of Hwys. 63, 72 and CTH DD. Not only will the expansion provide more space, but make the structure handicapped accessible through the inclusion of an elevator.

"We'll be able to serve the community in a bigger and better way," Schneider-Adams said Thursday, indicating the "welcome mat" will be put out to other groups for use of the facility.
