Also in Our Building

We are delighted to be able to share our historic building with a number of other community groups and organizations so that this building which was constructed and maintained with such loving care to serve the Portage la Prairie community continues to be hopping with activity not just on Sundays but every day of the week.

We have two permanent tenants who use portions of the West Wing of the church building throughout the year.
