MEDINA – The historic First Baptist Church in Medina is getting a new roof. Matt C.M. Contracting of Medina is taking off the slate roof and putting on an asphalt one. The roof has been leaking and some of the cracked pieces were a danger.

The roofing company has tried to save as many of the intact slate pieces as possible. Many of them are being given to members of the congregation as souvenirs. Jeff MacDonald, an employee for the roofing company, holds one of the pieces.
