Dear family and friends: Our interim journey is completed. We have many to thank who supported us in that time, like Jefferson Academy Middle School and our dear friends at Westminster Presbyterian Church. We will worship at 10 a.m. this Sunday, November 18th. The church is easily accessed via Metro with a free Wharf shuttle that picks up at the Maryland Ave St. entrance to L’Enfant Station, the 74 and Circulator buses that drop off in front of the church and limited parking. We do not have access to our 40 spaces in the underground garage because the residential portion of the project is lagging behind us. For now, we’ll have 35 spaces across from the church on Maine Ave. Go east past the church and turn right into the entrance for parking for the Odyssey and Wharf and then turn right. The lot is on the right. We will have someone with passes to put on your dashboard. That said, you may end up having to find street parking or park in the garage near the Safeway on 4th St and walk over. There is parking across the street in the Wharf garage but that is pricey.
What a remarkable moment! In this journey we have accomplished our two great goals: 1. create an endowment that will safeguard our church financially for decades to come and 2. build an iconic structure that brings us into the 21st century (our sanctuary and restrooms are very accessible and we have an elevator).
I look forward to worshipping with you on this Sunday. Let’s come full of joy and thanksgiving. Grace & Peace, ~Pastor Bledsoe
