Capital Campaign:

The theme of the capital campaign is "Building Connections—Uniting with God and the Community." The goal is to connect the Meeting House with the Chapel by means of a connector and make other necessary improvements to the Parish Hall Building. Our facilities will then be more accessible and user-friendly to all. How exciting it is to realize we are building on a foundation of 200 years of history at Belleville Congregational Church.
