Noelridge Park Church Volunteers Help Keep Building Costs Down
By Pat Peterson
In this time of ever climbing inflationary prices, the members of the Noelridge Park Christian church have found a way to build a new sanctuary for their church for one-third the costs.
Ixjyal Zierath, 59, 1030 Twixt Town road NE, a member of the church, said through donations and volunteer work, the church is constructing a building that under normal circumstances would cost $220,000 for about $75,000 to $80,000.
He said a member of the
congregation donated $20,000 to the project with the stipulation that the church match the amount. Zierath said the $40,000 has seen the project through the biggest share of the work and about $30,000 is needed to do the finishing work.

The Rev. Philip Ewoldsen, pastor of Noelridge Parle Christian church, and Loyal Zierath, who drew up the plans for the sanctuary, go over some details of the plans as they stand inside the new sanctuary.
Zierath drew up the plans for the building and has been working on the project since the congregation approved the plans May 17.
He said every Saturday there are about 30 workers on hand with about six there every day to work.
Zierath, self-employed, is an industrial engineer and tool designer with drafting experience. “I learned the construction business through my own efforts,” he said.
Zierath said the only aspect of the building that was being hired was the masonry work. He said members of the congregation will install the plumbing and electrical work.
Zierath said the Noelridge Park church received about $25,000 worth of stained glass windows, $12,000 worth of pews and various other church furnishing items from the now defunct Keota Christian church.
He said he hopes the building will be debt free, a rarity for church building programs, when it is completed.
The building project at Noelridge Park Christian church, undertaken almost completely by volunteers from the congregation, will add a new sanctuary. The present sanctuary, seen in the rear, will be used as a fellowship hall. \

The group, which broke off from the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. last December, had voted Tuesday night to change its name from the National Presbyterian Church to the National Reformed Presbyterian Church.
The word “reformed” had been added to the original title! because of a threatened lawsuit from the National Presbyterian Church in Washington,
D.C., which said the name similarity could cause confusion.
But many of the 600 delegates from 18 states did not like the new name so the denomination’s second general assembly voted on another name Wednesday.
Of the six names considered, the Presbyterian Church in America got 302 votes with the National Reformed Presbyterian Church the runner-up with 61 votes.
“Reformed is an unknown word to the average American,” said the Rev. Ben Haden, Chattanooga, Term., “we would have to spend a great deal of time explaining what it meant.”
