On July 16th, our Manchester NH Campus experienced flooding due to heavy rains that affected both the church building and adjacent parsonage, causing significant damage to their lower floors.
During the incident, which occurred during normal worship service times, church members came together to mitigate the water's impact as much as possible. However, the resulting damage is extensive, and we now need to replace the flooring, floorboards, and drywall in multiple areas. To ensure the safety and well-being of the congregation, last Sunday's services had to be canceled to allow for the professional removal of molded and water-damaged materials, as well as the sanitization of the affected spaces
To cover the cost of demolition and initiate the rebuilding process, we have secured a loan in the amount of $23,000 and we are building a team of volunteers for the rebuilding efforts, the total cost of which has yet to be determined.
