Rev. Andy Armstrong’s 2,000 mile "Tower to Tower Historical Ride"
supports The First Church Nashua's Tower Restoration Fund.
Rev. Andrew Armstrong, Senior Minister of The First Church Nashua
will spend several weeks during his spring sabbatical to ride the approximately 2,000 miles from Nashua, Iowa to Nashua NH to raise awareness of The First Church Nashua’s profound history and raise $75,000 for our tower renovations. Nashua’s Goodales Bike Shop
will support Rev. Andy’s cycling needs on this weeks long trip from May 15-June 12, 2022.
Did you know that First Church descendants and former Nashua residents established Iowa’s most historic church in Nashua, Iowa, the location that will be the start of Rev. Andy’s ride? It is called
The First Church Nashua’s beautiful granite building & bell tower, constructed in 1893, is a historic New England landmark. The 118-foot bell tower is the focal point and houses bells exhibited and played at the Chicago World’s Exhibition in 1893. Arrangements were made for The First Church to purchase ten bells, with agreement for the manufacture of five additional bells. The “Chime of Fifteen” was named the Mary P. Nutt Memorial Chime in recognition of her purchase of the chimes for the church.
Please support Rev. Andy in his adventure to support & restore the bell tower.
