Beneficiaries: Old Rock Church

In addition to helping children, Elizabeth Toon Charities has donated funds to help restore something very sacred to the heart of the organization.  There is a church in Bosque County, Texas that was built in 1886 that people refer to as The Old Rock Church.  This very special place is where Elizabeth knew she wanted to get married, from the first day she  stepped foot in this magical place.

Her father was not able to give her away to an earthly companion at the Old Rock Church, but instead it was where he laid her to rest to be with her Heavenly Father. Elizabeth Toon Charities has set up a fund to restore the church to its former splendor so it can serve as a beautiful site for future weddings, worship services and other celebrations.

The Renovations on the exterior and interior of the church were completed in June of 2010. A rededication and celebration of the 125th Anniversary took place June 12th, 2010 at the church. Over 400 people came to see the Old Rock Church restored to its original 1886 Norwegian style. The slideshow above is pictures of the process from start to finish.
