GUILD MEETING LOCATION SHIFTED TO SANCTUARY

Guild meeting Tuesday, February 15th, 7:00; Social Gathering at 6:30

Location is the sanctuary of the same building – entrance is at the right end of the same building in which we normally meet.  This is the entrance by the circular drive.  There will be a church production in our regular location.  This is NOT the Hallelujah House where we sometimes have workshops.  Best place to park will be to the right as you enter the parking lot – up the hill.
