Chancel Furniture Back in the Church!

On Saturday, April 23 Lolly, Margaret, Susan and I hosted a group of 20 students from Rutgers University for the sake of moving the chancel furniture back into the church. So many helping hands! We moved the furniture first out of the breezeway into fellowship hall. There, we vacuumed and washed it down before we brought it into the new sanctuary. For this, we used the elevator on the church side for the first time. It may not have been so obvious to all of us involved that day, but the event had significance: Our time of exile in the Randolph Room will come to an end, and we will soon be back in the new sanctuary. We could not be more grateful to all the student volunteers involved. Their leaders, Kelly and Tatiana, did a superb job!
