MONDAY. SEPTEMBER 16, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE THREE Alton Evangelical Votes To Move Eventually When Site Chosen, Church Built The congregation of Alton Evangelical United Church of Christ voted Sunday to move from its present quarters when it builds a new church. A site committee, composed of six members, will be appointed to locate a site for the church, The Rev. Charles L. Stevens, pastor, told the Telegraph. Plans showed that the present location, at Eighth and Henry Streets, is too small to construct the type and size of building needed for the church that has 824 members. Last October the congregation voted to build a new church and have the plans drawn up, but after the specifications were presented it was determined the present location is too small, unless additional property is purchased or a three story structure is built. The site committee will be appointed at the Consistory meeting Sept. 24, Rev. Stevens said. The committee will select two sites and a vote of the congregation will decide which one will be purchased.
