Blythewood Presbyterian Church settles into new outdoor pavilion.

Blythewood Presbyterian Church held the first worship service in their new outdoor pavilion on Easter Sunday. The next service is set for May 21.

Members of Blythewood Presbyterian Church christened their newly constructed pavilion on Easter Sunday with an outdoor worship service followed by a community meal. Located at 441 Rimer Pond Road, the pavilion both encompasses the natural surroundings and is a functional space that can seat 300 people.

The pavilion features storage rooms, restrooms and a great stone fireplace on one end, Pastor Rhett Sanders said.

Keith Berry, the owner of Makk Homes, assembled the structure from a kit, Shirley Construction did the site work for the property at large and Robert Blevins of Cedar Creek did the site work for the pavilion area. Armstrong Construction helped out with materials.

“We are planning to utilize the pavilion in ways that will bless our church family as well as the Town of Blythewood,” Sanders said. “Our hope is to provide space for relationships, celebrations, conversations and memories. We look forward to building community for decades to come.”

While still waiting to build a church building on the site, the congregation worships on Sunday mornings at Blythewood High School. The next worship gathering at the pavilion is planned for Sunday, May 21.
