Church of Colorado Springs

The church was repaired when Reverend Johnson took out a loan from Hank to buy some much-needed supplies: a new bell, paint, nails, window boxes, etc. The Reverend was motivated to make these repairs because Reverend Thomas, his Seminary instructor and mentor, was coming to town to see him. Unfortunately, the Reverend couldn't make Hank's payment schedule. Hank almost ended up claiming the church and the land on which it stands as collateral on the loan, until Michaela and his own conscience softened his stance.

Now, we keep a listing here of everything that has happened in our town. Take a look. If you have something to add, let us know.
