Work Progresses on UM Center Parking Lot



Closing of The United Methodist Center on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Monday allowed workers to make considerable progress on paving of the new entrance and expanded parking lot of the site along Freedom Road in Cranberry Township. A temporary gravel entrance had  been used since early March and parking has been limited since late January when site work began.

The project is intended to improve traffic flow, enhance safety for cars entering the property and provide needed additional parking spaces. The work   temporarily decreased the number of available parking spaces, so car-pooling to weekday or evening meetings has been encouraged. Many groups changed meeting locations to nearby Dutilh UMC or other area churches.

Because of the work, special arrangements were made for large groups such as confirmation classes to find alternate parking buses. Until the work concludes, contact Michael Schaeffer, facilities manager, or Greg Cox, director of connectional ministries, for information on possible alternative parking.  See contact information at
