Republic, Wash., July 10, 2012 -
A new sign welcomes visitors and members to the Republic (Wash.) Church. Thanks to the construction and rock work of Bob Charbonneau, Bob Nehler, Jack Knight, Al Fleck and Leonard Klein, the sign is a fitting beacon of hope for the community.
Designed and engraved by Charbonneau, the sign features an old-growth fir log slab, milled and donated by Jack Knight. It includes the Adventist logo as well as Sabbath School and church times. An additional banner can be hung at the top of the sign to feature coming events. Church members are already getting favorable comments from community members.
