On Sunday, the First Presbyterian Church will end the 10 a.m. morning worship service with a ceremony dedicating the renovation and expansion of the church building at 31 Bedford Road, Katonah.
After almost six years of planning, permissions and municipal approvals, and an extended year of site work and construction, the 330-member congregation will unveil its largest capital project since the sanctuary was renovated in the late 1980s, according to a press release from the church.
This time, the church concentrated on providing greater access to the disabled, additional class- and meeting rooms, music rehearsal space, a new kitchen and new above-ground Fellowship Hall. KG&D Architects and Engineers, PC of Mount Kisco and M.J.C. Construction of Yorktown Heights provided specifications, design and execution of the project.
“This is a long time in coming and it will indeed be a celebration,” interim Pastor Gavin Meek said in the statement. “I’m sure you will enjoy the day and the former pastors, staff and members who will return for the event.” The public is invited to morning worship and to a reception and extended celebration in the new facilities from 11:15 until 12:45 p.m.
