The First Baptist Church of Geneva has such a burgeoning membership they've created a "west campus". The church building itself resembles, as I've mentioned before, a junior high school building. After finishing the church building and parking lot, workers launched into the construction of the bell tower. The work looked fairly dangerous to me as masons labored on scaffolding that literally reached to the heavens. The bell tower is quite high, and of course it looms over the pancake flat countryside.
At the end of last week the spire lay on its side in the parking lot and it appeared that parishoners were placing something inside - a time capsule perhaps? And then....whoosh, a large crane lifted the structure to the top of the tower.
