The moving truck came June 30th and we are busy getting settled in our new home at Ebbert Memorial United Methodist Church, 532 C Street in Springfield. Moving to the church, which generously offered us the whole third floor of their building, gives us more space, larger classrooms and the opportunity to serve more students.

We will be closed until July 31 so that we can unpack and get organized for a fresh start this fall. Between July 31 and September 5, summer office hours will be Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m to 1 p.m. After September 5, we will resume our regular schedule. We’re looking forward to an exciting year and to sharing our new space with you. Come by and see us! Read more
