ALBION – Ulrich Signs in Lockport works on a new sign for North Point Chapel, which owns the former United Methodist Church building at the corner of Platt and East State streets in Albion.
North Point started as a congregation about three years ago. It first met in the Hoag Library before going to the Arnold Gregory Office Complex. About two years ago North Point went to the United Methodist building after that congregation left the building and now shares space at Christ Church with the Episcopalians.
The new sign was unveiled at about 12:30 p.m. today.
“We’re now official,” Mike Outten, the church’s pastor, said about the sign and the church’s presence in the community.
He likes the sign’s style, which he said blends “the 19th Century with the 21st Century.”
Outten said North Point will add gooseneck lights above the sign to illuminate it. An electrician will be arriving next week to discuss the project.
North Point Chapel has 10:30a.m. Sunday services at the church building which was constructed in 1860, and other ministry programs during the week.
