1959 Fund

Project Complete!

 

In 1959, the cornerstone of the New Goshenhoppen  Christian Ed wing was laid.  It was through the leadership, foresight, and sacrifice of our congregation in the 1950's and 60's that we were blessed with a "new building" where the Christian faith has and continues to be nurtured, taught, and experienced.

 

What is "The 1959 Fund"?

The 1959 Fund was our successful campaign to raise funds for a new roof on the Christian Ed building.  Thank you to all who helped make the 1959 project a success!

“The attitude of the congregation to [the building program was] evidenced in one experience:

 

An aged man of the congregation, not a wealthy man, came to the Pastor and said, “I will not live long enough to see the building completed, but we need that building, and I want to be a part of it”.  With that he shook the Pastor’s hand and pressed into his palm one thousand dollars. 

 

With this kind attitude, how could New Goshenhoppen fail in its forthcoming ministry of Christian Education.”     ~ Rev. Shellenberger
