The small windows to the left and right of the Memorial Hall entrance represent two of the miracles of Christ, feeding the multitudes and changing water into wine. These are the fifth and sixth windows in the design series and were completed and installed in 2017. These windows are particularly appropriate in the Liberty Memorial Hall, a place were members of the church and visitors gather and share the bounty of good food and wonderful fellowship following the worship service each Sunday.
The Memorial Hall cornerstone was laid in 1948. The hall was built in honor of those Liberty UMC members who died during World War II. Dedicated in 1949 it retains many of it’s original features (a shuffleboard game laid into the flooring tiles), while some features are new. The ceiling fans were a much needed addition completed just in time for the end of the summer of 2022!
