The Church Anchor
You should know a little about the large anchor up on the front of our church building. It is there for a few reasons:
  • Our church is a part of a shore town and so an anchor is appropriate.
  • The cruciform or cross shape of an anchor's stock may have been the reason for the anchor symbol to be used very early in the history of the Christian Church as a sign for grounding of all believers, their trust in the cross of Christ.
  • The use of an anchor as a symbol is related to the Bible verse in Hebrews 6:19 speaking of our Christian hope as "the sure and steadfast anchor of the soul."

The Church Tower
Our Church congregation dates back to 1876, the building being a former music hall/opera house. (That's why we like concerts and music, to keep that tradition going). Our tower was added in 1883 through a gift of Mrs. Sarah Remsen.
