The white steeple erected in 1855 has been a beacon within the historic Kingston community for nearly 160 years. Facing costly repairs and rising maintenance, the congregation decided to replace the spire and bell vault with state-of-the-art materials, replicating the exact look of the original wooden steeple, and apply a polymer coating to the lower tower. The steeple is a visible symbol of the church’s history and future. This renovation will free future generations from steeple maintenance so they can focus on ministry.
Costs for the project are projected to be $260,000, of which more than half has already been raised by the congregation. We are reaching out to our neighbors and friends hoping that you will assist us with financial support to make this improvement to the Kingston landscape. Donation information is below.
Applying the Biblical principle of tithing, 10% of funds collected will go directly to local and international mission work at your option. Our church has supported most of these organizations for decades and, in some cases, they grew out of members or friends who worshipped here during their formative years. A summary about these mission partners is available at http://kingstonpresbyterian.org/about-us/steeple-renovation-project/kingston-presbyterian-church-mission-partners/
