April 30 - May 1    
All Day

Two days of celebrations are being planned to honor and celebrate the courageous decision to rebuild our church with bold design after the devastating fire in 1968.  We’ll mark the reopening in 1972 and 50 years of community in our Paul Rudolph-designed church.

Festivities include a music concert with pre-reception, building tours and a lecture and panel with distinguished architects discussing Rudolph, his style and contributions.
