Saying “Farewell” to Calvary Chapel and “Hello” to Nursery School

Calvary Chapel of New Brunswick has been using our facilities for over six years now. At first, they were located in our basement area and then eventually moved to the upstairs area of our education building. Daniel Fusco was there first pastor. Jason Falzarano succeeded him in the pulpit. They took good care of our second story area and even assisted us with the Men’s Shelter quite willingly. All in all, we have been living well – above and below – with one another.

However, after December, we had to ask them to move to a new facility because the second floor will be renovated by the Pine Grove Cooperative Nursery School. The school, which has been in existence since 1957 and located off the Busch Campus, will be making the education building’s second floor (excluding the Pastors’ and Music Director’s offices) ready for classes, which will begin in September 2010. Approximately thirty preschoolers will be divided into three classes from Monday through Friday.

We are very excited to have the Nursery School in our midst. It is just another opportunity for our church to open its doors to the community. We look forward to the children’s voices, play and laughter in our rooms. We are excited to be working with a great group of teachers: Tracy Hanzes, a teacher and Executive Director, Lolly Schenck, and Lillie Suabedissen. And, we anticipate future cooperative events that we all can offer to the larger community.
