After six-months of construction, Highland Hall officially re-opened its doors to a packed house Sunday, November 12. No empty seats could be found for the 5 pm worship service. Nearly a dozen infants and young children enjoyed the new nursery below the Assembly Room, and the 5 pm Worship Team was more than happy to make additional seats at the table for Second Sunday Supper.
Updates include: a new Assembly Room stage and sound system, downstairs nursery for 5 pm worship, new kitchen, a catering kitchen to help IPC kitchen staff with future Highland Hall events, garage doors contacting the space off the old coffee shop (now called the Garage) to a brick patio, and space upstairs for the Birmingham college campus ministry UKirk.
In 2018, Highland Hall will become home to a new dementia care program for people with mild to moderate dementia called Wellspring. Program participants and volunteers will come to Highland Hall for four hours to participate in games, music activities, fellowship and a devotional. They’ll also have lunch.
Everyone is invited to explore the space and worship there at 5 pm on Sundays. After the holidays, Second
Sunday Suppers will resume on the second Sunday of the month immediately following 5 pm worship. It’s a casual dinner and a chance to enjoy a relaxing meal and fellowship before starting a new week. Stop by!
