The Church of Scientology has opened up a new "mission" here, located at 5150 N. Union Blvd.
According to Derek Murphy, the executive director of the mission, there are roughly 6,000 people locally who have shown an interest in the controversial church, from purchasing books to attending courses.
Murphy himself has been a member of the church for almost 10 years, he says. During that time he has had to travel to the Ideal Org in Denver to continue his pursuit of Scientology's teachings — teachings that have drawn a great deal of attention and criticism.
If you want to check out what all the hubbub is about, the mission will be open Monday, Thursday and Friday evening from 7 to 9:30, and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
