Church moves to Playhouse
Cedars Unitarian Universalist Church is playing to ever larger crowds these days, prompting a move from Hyla School to the Playhouse for worship services.
Weve outgrown the Hyla School Auditorium, church board president Jason Klein said. Our membership has nearly doubled in the last three years, to more than 160 not including the many friends who attend regularly.
Starting Aug. 14, Cedars will hold services at the Playhouse, which seats 240. Klein attributes the growth in membership to the Rev. Drew Johnston having come onboard as the first full-time settled minister in the groups 46-year history.
Summer services will be at 10 a.m. The winter schedule of services, at 9 and 10:30 a.m., will begin again in September. Religious education for children of all ages is provided at all services.
For more information, call 780-0373 or see cedarsuuchurch.org.
Movie party for BAC
Bainbridge Arts and Crafts is having a movie party on Aug. 18 at Bainbridge Cinemas in The Pavilion. Wine and substantial hors doeuvres will be served starting at 6:30 p.m., followed by a screening of Casablanca at 7:15. Tickets are $20 for movie-goers 21 and older. Call The Gallery at 842-3132 for reservations.
Pay by credit card over the phone or with cash or check the night of the party.
BAC extends special thanks to Jeff Brein and Sam Granato of Bainbridge Cinemas for making the event possible. It is part of BACs Party for the Arts fund-raising activities, which support visual arts education programs in the community.
Music and art at Waterfront
As part of the Bainbridge Island Park and Recreation Districts free Wednesday night summer concerts in Waterfront Park, Side Project plays there tonight from 7-8:30 p.m.
Each concert by the ensemble combines innovative and original pop and rock with mixed-media such as live paintings, photography, sculpture, cued video and silent films.
