Years Lyndale UCC has been around
With three raw sanctuary spaces in SpringHouse, all three congregations are able to worship at 10:30am separately. Yet we’re intentional about our life together, sharing a strong Sunday School, youth ministry, some justice activities, a few staff, our coffee hours, and occasional combined worship. The three churches each bring rich history and identity, and commitment to this shared, sustainable facility and ecumenical life.
Back in the day, a spring house was a small house or shed built over the place where a spring emerged from the ground. The spring’s natural cooling offered a cool place to store perishables and a safe place from which to draw water before the water flowed out over the land. A theme in the building and design process has been water—healing water, baptismal water. SpringHouse Ministry Center is a place from which healing waters flow forth into the neighborhood and beyond.
