Karen Gibson, co-pastor of Friendship United Methodist Church, stands in front of the church her congregation used for much of the 1980s. For the past 18 years, worshippers have shared facilities with St. Mark's Episcopal Church and Lutheran Church of Grace after their old church was closed because of falling attendance and structural flaws.
