The Story

We plan to add a "lift" and safe stairwell to provide dignified and easy access for anyone with mobility issues who wants to enter the church for any reason.

Norman Barres has made a $20,000 challenge gift in memory of his wife Nancy Barres to encourage us to give generously. Please help us meet this goal and make Nelson Congregational Church accessible to all.

Since our last update, much has happened. Our honorary chair, Norm Barres, passed away at age 87 after a brief illness. It was his initial challenge gift that took this project from a wish to actuality, and we will be forever grateful. Gifts and pledges continue to come in, with an outpouring of generosity in memory of Norman and his wife, Nancy. We are so pleased to announce we just passed $150,000 this weekend! We've reduced the YouCaring goal to $25,000 to reflect just the remaining need. We are also close enough to our goal that the trustees are starting the scheduling process with the contractors. Thank you for helping.
