NEW STEEPLE FOR SHEA CHAPEL!  Last September, Hurricane Irma blew down and destroyed the steeple atop Shea Chapel at Upsala Presbyterian Church (Upsala Presbyterian Church was founded by Swedish immigrants in 1891, and Shea Chapel is the original sanctuary of this historic church.)  The process to find a manufacturer of steeples to replace the steeple on Shea Chapel has been a long one.  But the replacement of the steeple on Shea Chapel has now been accomplished!  Fiberglass Specialties Incorporated, in Henderson, Texas, manufactured the new steeple for us, and Shoemaker Construction Company, headquarted in Sanford, Florida, handled the installation of the steeple, as well as the repairs to the chapel roof.   The total cost of this project (which includes the purchase of the new steeple, the repairs to the chapel roof, and the installation of the steeple) will be approximately $17,000.  Special financial contributions to help offset the expense of this project may be sent to Upsala Presbyterian Church, 101 Upsala Rd., Sanford, FL  32771.
