Kingston United Methodist Church members will soon return to their sanctuary for the first time since a fire damaged the building on April 30, 2011.
The newly renovated sanctuary includes a new stained-glass front window. The chancel area, which was destroyed by the fire, has been rebuilt larger than before with expanded space for the choir, a grand piano and new organ.
“It’s an exciting time,” said church member Judy Rose. “You just can’t believe how excited we are. It is kind of like a totally new beginning.”
