A Moment in Time: 1890

We have begun creating new pages that convey some of this congregation's history at particular moments in time. You'll find descriptions of important events, photographs, maps, and even listings of names, reflecting some of the people who played either larger or smaller roles in this congregation's history. The first "Moment in Time" page that we created focuses on 1890, the year that we rebuilt our damaged sanctuary, a year of great energy and vision. You can view the "Moment in Time" pages by clicking on them under the "History" tab at the top of this page, or sample the 1890 page by clicking here.
