Beatrice Church Repair Work Uncovers Old, Hidden Items

BEATRICE – Some volunteers and church congregation members got a bit of a surprise this week, while doing some repair work to the Homestead Baptist Church just south of downtown Beatrice.

Congregation member Dennis Applegarth says teams from Colorado, Kansas, Arkansas, and Missouri have been in town for a sports challenge event for kids at the YMCA, but also taking time for touch-up work on the church.

The items found filled up a couple of pews inside the church.   Applegarth said it did not appear to be some kind of planned time-capsule…. waiting to be opened.

Applegarth said there are no real plans for what to do with the items, but he said the church would likely give them to the people from outside the community that are helping the church, this week.

Applegarth says the repair work at the Homestead Baptist Church will conclude by the end of this week. 

The church is located on the northwest corner of Fifth and Bell Streets.
