As you have likely noticed, the chanting this morning is accompanied by the kirtan group instead of harmonium only as we usually have on Sundays.  We hope to include kirtan from time-to-time in Sunday services so all can experience a taste of devotional kirtan chanting, which is a part of our long meditations at least once-per-month.

Our 2018 General Membership Meeting will be held today after the Sunday Services. All are invited and welcome to attend. We plan to start at 12:15 and will end no later than 2 p.m.

Over the past two weeks, our contractors have successfully installed blow-in insulation to the interior and exterior walls of our chapel, repairing cracks in the chapel walls, and painting all interior chapel walls.  Next we are making plans to install new light fixtures in the chapel, and additional speakers on the back beam of the chapel.

This coming week, the Sunday School room will be covered in plastic and used as a “paint studio” for our new 15-foot-wide building sign, which needs several coats of background paint and detailed paint on the raised lettering. The Thursday evening study group may need to be moved to either the youth group room or chapel if the project is still ongoing; next week’s Sunday School will be unaffected.

Thanks for your understanding as we beautify our Center’s chapel.
