Restore the "Old Log Church"!

In 1939, twenty dedicated, hard-working folks hand-built the Black Forest Community Log Church. This group included Edith Wolford and her husband!
This was the first church in the Forest.

Thus, the Catholic, Baptist and Mormon congregations all held their services in the Log Building, until they built their own places of worship.

Since the very beginning, the Log Church has been used by many Black Forest organizations, including the Boy Scouts of America and Alcoholics Anonymous.
In 2016, the Black Forest Log Church PROUDLY became listed on the Colorado Historical Registry.

Over the years, nature has taken its toll on this beautiful building. Critters have gnawed on the hand-
hewn logs, and water has rotted the wood. The Black Forest Community Church members have faithfully attempted to maintain this historic site, but now, YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!

This year, grant money has been bestowed for the restoration of the Log building, with the requirement of a 25% match, $5,500 of the total cost of $21,900, from the community. With these funds, the exterior of the "Old Log Church" will be restored to its original condition. Projects to include stripping paint, replacing chinking, and repairing wooden double-paned windows.

PLEASE HELP PRESERVE THE OLDEST CHURCH IN THE FOREST!
