Short term home for Castlegar church

A pair of Castlegar-related briefs concerning a temporary church base and a garden celebration

The Kinnaird Church of God has got some new digs, at least in the short term.

The Castlegar Christian Fellowship has stepped forward and offered the church a place to hold its Sunday and first Tuesday of the month services.

The new location is at 1821 Connors Road and the 10 a.m. Sunday services and 7 p.m. Tuesday services will be held there for the next several months.
