The decision to preserve the old 100 plus year old church building, known as The South New Hope Church, was one of the most difficult decisions the Trustees has had to make. The decision was not taken lightly and did not come quickly. The Trustees wrestled almost a year with the question of demolishing vs. restoring the building.
