LANCASTER, Pa. — Eastern Mennonite Missions (EMM) and 300 attendees celebrated the beginning of the renovations of 450 North Prince Street on Sunday, February 9. EMM is eager to move its administrative offices into this new space, which will allow them to continue their global ministry while engaging the local Lancaster community through a cross-cultural hospitality center. The drop-in reception and ceremony provided an opportunity for people to explore the building, view renderings of the renovated space, and ask for God’s blessing on the project.
