Verona, Wisconsin’s newest church was a neglected bowling alley just last year.
So when Sugar River United Methodist Church held an open house to celebrate the completion of its new sanctuary space, people were pretty interested.
Both the Wisconsin State Journal and the local Verona Press covered the unique transformation leading up to the November 5 event, as well as NCI-Roberts Director of Client Services Robin Roberts’ thoughts on current church building trends.
Among those trends are remodeling existing commercial spaces instead of building new, and repurposing materials in the process. At Sugar River, wood from the bowling alley was used as finish material on the stairway, and the floor and back walls of the sanctuary stage.
NCI-Roberts was thrilled to be part of the open house – and more importantly, the project – and we wish the Sugar River congregation all the best in their new space.
