Parking Lot Maintenance

Parking Lot Maintenance

Please pardon our dust!  Weather permitting, the resurfacing and restriping of our main parking lot off of Maple Avenue, on the west side of the church, is scheduled to take place on August 2-3. Parking will be limited to the north lot, which may be accessed from Grove Street. This will significantly reduce the number of available spaces, so please plan accordingly and make other arrangements, if possible.

We apologize for the temporary inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
