Building Usage

It seems that there are more and more requests for usage of our buildings. In December, we will have several groups using our facilities for one-time events on Saturdays. Also, we are meeting as an ad-hoc committee with several new regular requests, seeing whether or not their need for space will fit in with our availability.

The Seventh Day Adventist congregation will be using the Randolph Room and a part of the Fellowship Hall on Saturdays starting in February. They are a group of folks from Kenya, but they are affiliated with the Seventh Day Adventist Church on Livingston Avenue. The reason for them seeking another space is that they want to hold some of the worship in their own language.

Also, Sunday afternoons from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., the Raices Cultural Center will be teaching music and dance. The co-directors are Francisco Gomez and Nicole Wines, both have been living and teaching in New Brunswick for many years now. They have already participated in two Lunchtime Recitals, and we are looking forward to their participation at the January inter-faith, multi-cultural dance event on Jan 22nd from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 pm.

About Susan Kramer-Mills
