Earlier this summer the Juneau church had a local company come in and pull out all of the heat registers in the Sanctuary to be sandblasted and repainted. They were recently re-installed and look really nice. Check out the before and after pictures at Events & News - What's Happening - Juneau.
We have a lot of people in our congregations that do a lot of work that people may not know about, especially outside work. I want to thank Bob and Nancy Krueger in Juneau and Mary Danner and whoever else helped keep the beautiful flower beds in check at Horicon for all of their hard work this summer. Check out the pictures under Events & News - What's Happening - Horicon and Juneau.
