Visioning Meeting for the Sanctuary Redesign

It has been a few months since many of you filled out the questionnaires for the sanctuary redesign, the results of which provided us with great clarity regarding the opinions of the majority of the congregation. We know that most of you are looking for a redesign to an upper sanctuary with a media center/meeting room space on the first floor on the side that remains after the affordable housing is built. This is the basic division of the existing space. If you have any questions, then please refer to the previous newsletter and the report therein.

With that division being so determined, there are then many other incidentals to consider, some of which the RCA architect, David Cooper inspired us to reflect upon. Therefore, a special Visioning Event is scheduled for May 13, beginning at 6:00 pm with a potluck dinner and ending by 8:30 pm. Lauren and Gary Bernhofer, 24 Poplar Avenue, North Brunswick, have generously opened their homes for this event.

Please, if you need a ride, contact me and I will arrange a pick up. All our church members are welcome to attend, since this is about how our future sanctuary will be designed.
