Project ReBuild St James

There comes a time when we need to reach out to other for help and for me this is one of those times. As I have accepted this Herculean task to restore this historical landmark, which has been a light in the Norfolk community since the late 1880s, I can't do it alone. This is one of the last all wood structures that have seen the best and worst to times, but it is still standing. I need the help of my brothers and sisters in Christ and of those who love to preserve history and our culture. The price tag is huge but I do believe it is possible through the awesome God we serve. In advance I thank you. ALL funding goes directly to the restoration effort. Pastor Wainwright
