WORSHIP LOCATIONS

As most of you know, the Seminary is about to embark on some major remodeling of their facility, including the Chapel. We noted on Sunday, April 25, that the pews have already been removed. We expect our last service in the Chapel to be Sunday, May 16, and that we may be able to return on Sunday, August 1. That said, contractor schedules are notorious for “slipping”, so it may well be later in August when we return.

We have scheduled worship services in a variety of locations for the interim, and that schedule is tentatively as follows:

May 23            Outdoor Worship/Picnic at Dutton Park

May 30            Sierrafield Clubhouse (Jim’s condo complex; see map)

June 6 – 27      Kentwood Library Meeting Room

July 4              Sierrafield Clubhouse

July 11            Kentwood Library Meeting Room

July 18            Outdoor Worship/Picnic at Dutton Park

July 25            Kentwood Library Meeting Room
