DEXTER — Crossroads Church has drawn worshippers for more than a century. Now its exterior is getting a little tender loving care. The public can help support the effort through donations. Church member Linda Schraner said she and the congregation are working to raise the $8,000 needed to replace clapboard on the front and rear of the church.


"It's thin and worn after 117 years," Schraner said this week.

Kenny Kieser is replacing the siding with new poplar boards. He was working with Aaron Parker and others Sunday and the work was nearing the eaves of the building's rear. For more information on the church and its renovation, call Schraner at 836-2301. Nondenominational Bible study is held at the church Saturdays at 2 p.m. Rev. L. D. Voyles is the pastor. The public is always welcome.
