HEBRON – Hebron United Methodist Church is planning a fundraising campaign to repair its roof and sanctuary structure.

The church will host a campaign kickoff banquet at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at the church, 9811 Main St., Hebron. A full dinner will be served, and the Rev. Darneather Murph-Heath, Elgin district superintendent for the Northern Illinois Conference of United Methodist Church, will deliver a message, according to a news release from the church.

The church sanctuary was built in 1925, and the roof was deemed unsound in 2016. Church members have since held services in the fellowship hall. Repairs are estimated to cost $220,000, according to the release.

“This represents the largest capital fundraising campaign in our church’s history, and one that will both solidify the future of our church and help deliver the spirit of the United Methodist Church to the surrounding community,” the Rev. Jim Wilson said in a statement. “All are welcome Saturday night, and every Sunday morning throughout the year, as we look to reinforce both the building and the connection with the community in McHenry County.”
