We have been given permission by the DOT and Kiewit to continue to hold our services at the BTCA building next to the fire station in Drake. With the road closures our Loveland folks would not have been able to come up the canyon for a service at any time. Permits for travel through the work zones at certain times were given only to residents of the canyon and mountain communities near Drake. However, we have special letters allowing us to pass through for our worship services!
Because of the road closure schedule, we are changing our service time and date to:
Saturdays – 5-6PM
This was the best choice of what was available to us. We invite folks in the Drake and Glen Haven area to join us for worship at that time. We understand that it will be difficult for residents to connect with their regular churches during this time, and we welcome you for as long as you wish to be with us.
We are grateful to the Lord for the opportunity to remain in the Drake community while the road construction is being done. We also look forward to the day when we can rebuild and settle our ministry once again.
If you wish to come up to the Chapel for Saturday service and live east of the road closures, you will have to call someone from the church to arrange a ride or loan of a permission letter. We are not allowed to make copies of the letters we have received and the letter must be available to show the officer at the roadblock. While this may seem restrictive, we feel it is generous, and we are grateful for the permission to continue to hold our services in the canyon.
If you are coming from areas west of the fire station in Drake, you will not need any special permits or letters to attend a service with us. The road closure begins just east of the fire station.
