Newell First Church of the Nazarene
The first picture below shows the Nazarene Church when it was located at 300 Washington Street. This photo probably dates from around the 1940s. The current building was constructed in 1956 directly behind the old church at 3rd and Grant Streets. The Nazarene Fellowship Hall was built in the late 1970s and is located where the old wooden church once stood.

Images that follow are of the Nazarene Church as it appeared in June of 2012. I had not been inside the chuch since the early 1980s. When I visited, Pastor Barb Perkins took me on a tour and showed me some of the changes -- the most notable being the baptismal up front.
