After more than 27 years of holding its signature program, Adventures in Learning, at First Baptist Church, the Shepherd’s Center of Kansas City, Kan., has a new location for this monthly series.
Starting with the May 17 program, Adventures in Learning will now take place at Grace Lutheran, 3333 Wood Ave., in Kansas City, Kan.
The Shepherd’s Center of Kansas City, Kan., is grateful for its very long and successful partnership with First Baptist Church, and presented First Baptist Pastor Bill Delphia with a plaque expressing its appreciation for the use of their building, a spokesman said. In spite of the generosity of First Baptist, the building was becoming increasingly difficult for the attendees to navigate the various flights of steps inside the building.
Our May 17 Adventures in Learning will take place at the new location at Grace Lutheran. The building offers entry-level parking and easy dropoff of both people and equipment. Everyone is welcome to attend part or all of the day’s activities.
The schedule for Friday, May 17 is:
9 a.m. to 10 a.m. – Free blood pressure checks, as well as registration and fellowship.
