For the past five months, Liberty Grace Brethren Church has been immersed in renovations.
Since acquiring Richland Christian Church’s red-brick building on Tener Street, the Liberty Grace congregation has extensively remodeled the sanctuary, bathrooms, kitchen and offices. New carpeting has been installed throughout, and chairs have replaced pews in the sanctuary.
But Pastor Doug Black wants his congregation to remain focused on the community, not the building itself.
“As much as the building is a great place to meet and encourage and build up, for us it’s the launching point,” Black said. “It’s more important for us to be involved in community activities.”
Liberty Grace Brethren Church will hold an open house weekend Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 29-30
