Due to construction of the Elizabeth Cramer Chapel, the west entrance to the Arborlawn Sanctuary will be partially blocked for the duration of the project. You can still enter the Lower Commons from the west side through the double doors next to the main entrance.
Ushers and greeters will be on hand to guide you as we make the temporary adjustments. You’ll still be able to park on the west side of the building and enter with relative ease. An open sidewalk next to the construction trailer will lead you to the secondary entrance. The secondary entrance is special-needs accessible and leads to a door near the elevator in the Lower Commons area.
We simply want to alert you to the minor inconvenience posed by the construction of the Elizabeth Cramer Chapel so you are aware of the alternative entrance when you arrive at the church. This minor inconvenience, of course, is also a wonderful sign of growth and a celebration of the remarkable gift of the Elizabeth Cramer Chapel to the people of our congregation and community.
The people of Arborlawn have a gift for dealing with change and minor inconveniences better than anyone I know. We never lose sight of the big picture or the real blessing. A partially blocked entrance is not an inconvenience or a source of frustration; it’s a sign that God is at work in this place called Arborlawn.
Thanks be to God for holy inconveniences. Thank you for being the church you are.
