Suppers and fairs have been among the fundraising activities. Over the years new coats of white paint have been applied, the roof has been reshingled, the interior redecorated, the pews painted, and the electric lights and gas heaters were installed. When the reed organ came to be out of sorts, a piano was donated.
During the entire history of Stark Union Church pew owners assisted by people of all faiths have cared for the church and paid ministers. Ladies’ Aid societies and the Community Club have worked hard to raise money for the maintenance and upkeep of the church.
