North of Vernon
Travelling north on highway 97A on the way to Salmon Arm or Sicamous, about 35 minutes north of Vernon, you will come to a junction in the road; take the road that goes to Sicamous. Driving on this windy road for less than 5 minutes, you will drive pass a fertilizer/animal feed loading plant on the right hand side. Very shortly you will cross a set of railroad tracks after which you take the first right; this is 4th Avenue. Now you drive down a couple of blocks, turning left onto Carlin Street; very shortly you will turn right onto 3rd Avenue where you will see the two attached portables that serve as our hall and church.
