Church Open House

On June 26, you’re invited to an Open House at the church. The building will be open from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

This will be a chance to come into the building and be together. Some people have things at home they would like to return to the church. Some people have things they own at the church that they would like to take home. Some people would like a chance to be in the building with people they haven’t seen in a long while.

If you have a keycard and/or keys this would be a time to return them.

There isn’t any organized activity planned. It’s just a time to be in the space before the transition takes place.
