The Lighthouse Community Church at 13th and L streets is getting a facelift. Starting this week, the building is being sandblasted and repainted and the brickwork updated.
Pastor John Wheat says it’s about time. Donations were given to him to purchase the paint and to hire a lift to access the spire. Donations for the renovation and upkeep of the church are always welcome.
Pastor Wheat and parishioners are doing the work. Following the 2003 San Simeon Earthquake, the foundation was replaced, and plans are being made to update and improve the interior of the building in the future.
The Little White Church, as it has been known to San Miguel old-timers, was built in 1892 on K Street and later moved to its present location. Pastor Wheat invites all to attend services. Sunday school, including youth ministry and adult bible study, starts at 9:45 a.m. The Sunday service is at 10:30 a.m. A prayer meeting is held at 10 a.m. Wednesdays.
The San Luis Obispo Symphony, directed by Michael Nowak, will present Music at the Mission featuring the works of J.S. Bach on Sunday at 3 p.m.
Violin soloist will be Brynn Albanese. Tickets are $35, $25 and $15 and are available online at www.slosymphony.com, by calling 756-2787 or at the door.
The Old Mission San Miguel Busy Bees will hold their spring Rummage and Bake Sale in the Mission Picnic Grounds on Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. All proceeds go to the Parish Community Building. Donations will be accepted Friday from 8 a.m. to noon.
