Top: The sun shines in Curtis Burge's face as he bolts beams to the trusses of the new River Valley Community Church building Thursday. The new building, located just west of town on State Road 62 will be the permanent home of one of the most recently formed churches in the area. They currently meet at the Venture Out Business Center.

Bottom: At North Madison Christian Church, across from the new King's Daughters' Hospital, construction continues on the expansion project that will include a new sanctuary for the church.
