Pastor Holly Johnson’s Installation POSTPONED

Sunday, TBD, 10:30am

The Hook & Ladder, 3010 Minnehaha Ave, Mpls

Due to the April blizzard we have postponed Holly’s installation.

There are “art installations” when a new art show opens in a place. You might get your car battery installed. Perhaps there was a day you had central air installed in your house.

On a Sunday coming soon, we will have an installation service for Pastor Holly.
