Sanctuary Renovation Project


Sanctuary Renovation Project

The First Presbyterian Church Sanctuary is currently closed for exciting renovation! Beginning this Sunday, April 15, 11 a.m. worship will meet in the Great Hall for the duration of the project. 

New! Take Home a Sanctuary Pew

A few pews will not be reinstalled at the completion of the renovations (to allow for more leg room). You have the chance to take home one of these pews! Find out more.

Renovation Project Plans

We expect the project to take no more than four months, meaning we will likely rededicate the space sometime in September. The renovation plans call for:

  • Updated public address system
  • New paint
  • Spacing the pews farther apart to allow for easier movement
  • Adding a lift into the chancel to welcome those with mobility challenges into worship leadership
  • Bringing the chancel and the Lord’s Table forward, and closer to worshipers 

Funding for the Project

The Session has provided funding for the project from resources generously provided in the past and side aside to fund projects like this one. There will be no solicitations. Our congregation is incredibly blessed!
