New locaton for a house of prayer

(I thought it would be interesting to use Sundays to focus on Rensselaer's churches and to see how many Sundays I can go before I ran out of material. Indiana is richly endowed with religious denominations, with influences from North and South, East and West. This is part of that series of posts.)

I recently noticed that the Northern House of Prayer, previously mentioned here, had moved to the old WRIN building north of Rensselaer. The address is 2430 N. McKinley. The pastor is still Mac Howard. Sunday services are at 10:00 am.

This building has had at least two other uses since this blog began. In 2010 it was a Mexican grocery, and before that it was the Bargain Barn.

Since I finished the series on Rensselaer churches a couple years ago, many of them have had changes. I probably should do a couple posts of updates.

What happened to WRIN?

WRIN is now housed with WLQI in what used to be an old township school about a mile north or Rensselaer. WRIN is AM, WLQI is FM.

Thanks for the wiki link, Dessert Survivor! I used to live directly across from WRIN...I stood in the doorway for a wind block when waiting for the school bus. Back in the 70s, when we had a huge snow storm, the radio employees stayed at our house for a week or so so they could keep the radio on the air.
