Today, the Kadesh Restoration Committee, along with Representative Ed Goodwin, shared with the Kadesh AME Zion Church congregation that the State of NC is granting $2M to the Edenton Historical Commission for the restoration of their church!

The below information and images were shared by Commissioner Samuel Bobbitt Dixon:

“Today was a great day in Edenton. The historic Kadesh Church will be restored and the congregation will be able to return to their spiritual home. Thank you Rep Ed Goodwin for securing 2 Million dollars in funding. The people of Edenton came together to help make sure this project was successful. Thank you also to the Kadesh Restoration Committee. Today proves that with hard-work, kindness and love of a community that dreams do come true!”

While this grant provides tremendous assistance to the Restoration Project, it does not cover all of the costs. We still need your assistance to restore this glorious symbol back to its place of pride in our community!
