Church opening delayed


The Almira Community Church has delayed its Coulee Dam opening date for services to Oct. 9, Pastor Paul McArthur said last week.

The opening for services had previously been set for Oct. 2.

“Things have been progressing nicely,” McArthur stated.

Workers have been doing some painting on the outside, windows have been cleaned, and inside the stone edifice others have been getting rid of cobwebs grown during no activity. It’s nearly ready for services again.

The roof, due for repair, is still a question mark, McArthur stated. The church is still waiting for estimates, McArthur explained.

Almira Community Church was given the property by the Presbyterian Church, which ceased services at the end of last year.

McArthur said plans now call for the first local service at 8:45 a.m., Sunday, Oct. 9. He said normal services at the Almira Church will take place at 11 a.m.
