BUILDING FOR GENERATIONS – A Call for Blessings and Prayers
In just a few short weeks, we will begin closing walls in our rebuilt CBI Youth Center and Gan Shalom Preschool. Before we do that, we wanted to invite members of our entire CBI and Gan Shalom Family to come to the new building and leave a blessing by writing something on the inside of the walls before we close them up. Your writings and blessings will imbue our new building with sacred intentions, prayers, and good wishes.
Sunday Sept. 21, 5:00 – 6:00 pm
