Last week, our community made an offer for the purchase of a former Lutheran church at 7th and Kellogg in Ames. With Glory to God and through the prayers of St. Xenia of Petersburg, the Theotokos, and all the Saints, we were notified yesterday (Sunday, August 10) that at their congregational meeting our offer was accepted!
Details will be forthcoming – we have a LOT of work to do before we can occupy the building. Until that time, we will continue to gather for our services at the same place – University Lutheran Center, Basement Fellowship Hall, 2126 Gable Lane, in Ames.
We are thankful to God for allowing us to expand Orthodox Christian ministry in Ames and the rest of Central Iowa. Stay tuned for upcoming notifications about when we will begin utilizing our new space.
