From a Zephyr Point brochure

Over one hundred groups a year use Dobbins Hall as their meeting space, including many of our Presbyterian congregations. Eighty years ago this building was erected as “holy ground” for the spiritual life of our denomination. It has been that “thin place” where so many Christ-centered epiphanies have taken place: calls to ministry, meaningful worship, healings of broken spirits, decisions to become Christ followers, etc. Now we want to breathe fresh life into this much used historical structure to hopefully gain another eighty years of service for future generations that come to Zephyr Point.

The total needed for these enhancements is $1 million of which $200,000 is already on hand by Zephyr Point. Our donation will be used to solicited matching donations in partnership with individuals and groups related to Zephyr Point.
