Volunteers helping put church back together in Stanton

STANTON - Much work has been done to repair the damage caused by vandals to the St. James Baptist Church on South College in Stanton. The first priority was to replace the 11 broken windows - the small congregation had placed plastic over the broken windows in order to have services in the building following the Dec. 22 breakin. James Jenkins, a prominent member of the church, had contacted Adam Murio, a local carpenter, to give an estimate to replace the windows and the entrance door. The estimate was for $7900. As the information of the break-in was made public by the news media, social media and word-of-mouth, donations were make by many individuals, organizations and others. The pastor of the Methodist Church of Stanton, Charlie Stevens, announced at this last Sunday’s services that the offering for that Sunday would be donated to the St. James Baptist Church. The Martin County Community Fund also made a generous contribution.
