LOOK FOR THE BALLOONS ON THE ENTRANCE SINCE THERE ARE NUMEROUS ENTRANCES TO THE BUILDING. AND IF YOU KNOW ANYONE WITH A BIRTHDAY, BRING THEM, those with birthdays are FREE!! WE ALREADY HAVE THE ICE CREAM AND DESSERTS. JUST BRING A CAKE TO SHARE IF YOU CARE TO.


This entrance going downstairs directly into the Fellowship Hall is on the hill at the very SE corner of the Church facing 22nd and P. It is to the right of the large Southern-facing entrance on the corner or left of the Eastern-facing entrance on that same corner and goes directly into the Fellowship Hall. The entrance overlooks the small Park and Monument at 22nd and P St NW. Since people have had trouble finding it, we'll have balloons tied to the entrance railing.
