The church’s Cabinet has been hard at work figuring out where we will gather for worship and prayer after December 31. The plan details will be announced at a Town Hall Meeting on Sunday, November 9, following worship.
When we sold 255 H Street to the Dharma Drum Mountain Buddhist Association, we had a leaseback agreement to use the building on Sunday mornings and Thursday nights and to have our offices in the building. That leaseback ends December 31 and DDMBA has informed us that they cannot extend it and complete the renovations they have planned before a major event in the spring.
Because of delays on our construction project, we will not be moving into 36600 Niles Blvd in December. In fact, we’re now looking at a March move-in date. This has created the need to find temporary space for worship, choir rehearsals, and the church offices. Options are still being explored as of the press deadline, but the Cabinet hopes to have a decision and detailed plans by the November 9 Town Hall Meeting.
