EVENING PRAYER & OPEN HOUSE @ 301 Sheppard Court

Save the Date – Sunday, 10 March 2019

Curious? Anxious? Excited? This is our opportunity to see for ourselves the progress made on our new church building, and pray for its safe completion.


We gather at 4:30 PM on site. Parking is available in the street outside the property entrance. Take note of gravel and red clay as you walk the grounds. Evening Prayer begins at 5:00 PM, followed by refreshments, after which visitors will be free to tour the site, and visualize the interior of our new church.

OPEN HOUSE concludes at sundown, and the property will once again be OFF LIMITS.
