Nazarene church adds steeple to roof

| September 11, 2017

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton Church of the Nazarene now has a brand new church steeple thanks to a generous member of the congregation.

“I just thought it looked bare so I asked Google who made church steeples,” said Wilbur Donley, who’s been a member of the church since 1952.

Google suggested Fiberglass Unlimited in Alabama.

“We kicked around the idea of some other people, but they were so good to us,” Donley said. “I probably called them a half dozen times, but they were always real polite.”

Donley made sure they had all the right permits for the addition to the church and before everyone knew it the brand new, white church steeple arrived in Coshocton on Sept. 8.

William Albert Excavating used its crane to raise the steeple to the top of the church at 1058 Orange St. while a small crowd of people watched the historic moment. Donley hopes the steeple makes people stop and think when they drive by and see it.

“Maybe they will picture Christ up there hanging on the cross,” he said. “They will see it because it’s big and up there in the air so hopefully it will make them want to come on in and see what’s going on.”
