UNITED CHURCH News:
The United Church of Los Alamos is under construction. The $2.4 million renovation project includes most of the campus, including the Christian Education Building, Sanctuary, Thrift Shop and parking lots at 2525 Canyon Road.
An elevator and atrium are being installed in the Christian Education Building.
The church had a successful fund raising campaign earlier this year that has allowed it to proceed with this major project. The campaign began with a visioning group that met in 2009.
It was determined that The United Church needed to improve accessibility to its buildings. However, the project grew to also include enhancing the facilities and unifying the entire campus.
The theme for the project is “Building A Way for Everyone.” Along with providing improved accessibility for members and friends, the church wanted to also improve the facilities for the many groups and organizations who meet there each week, including Canyoncito Montessori.
“So ‘Building A Way for Everyone’ extends beyond this congregation to the community of Los Alamos, of which we are privileged to belong and serve,” said the Rev. David Elton, senior pastor of the United Church of Los Alamos. “While we are having to juggle room schedules, our weekly services, children and youth programs, classes and other events will continue each week throughout the fall.”
