Have you been to our new prayer chapel?

I've included some photos before of a project we are working on in the former storage room off the sanctuary.  Though it has been a pastor's office and a choir room in the past, the little room right off the sanctuary had been in use for a number of years as a storage area.  The worship committee felt the room was too pretty to "store stuff, " and began work on a prayer chapel.  Harvey Grundman made the altar for the room and recently cut a pew in half to use in the room, and we've made other additions to offer an area for prayer and contemplation.  Come in and read a copy of Alive Now, use the finger labyrinth, sit by the fountain, or kneel at the prie dieu and light a candle on the altar.  Each Sunday communion is available in the room, and during business hours, the chapel is open from an outside door for your use.   Our prayer is that the congregation finds the chapel to be an encouragement to observe a "cathedral in time."  Thanks to everyone who contributed to the project and who contributed to the memorials fund of the church.  We believe we have turned storage space into sacred space.
