Filming continues in Heffner Hall this week and will be followed by a few days of strike and clean-up. This is considered a “live set” so we ask that you not try to enter Heffner hall even if it is after hours of filming.
There will be no parking on the administration building side of the church today and tomorrow. The lot will be cleared for Saturday’s Memorial Service.
We appreciate your patience with this. Clean-up in Heffner Hall should be complete by Tuesday morning, June 27.
