Good Sunday morning! This historic building at the corner of Walnut and Jefferson is where I like to spend my Sunday morning, The Downtown Church, where all are welcome. The music is great and the people are like family.

Butler, Rosenbury & Partners completed a renovation of the church’s hospitality area a few years ago. It was updated to be more consistent  with the historic architecture of the church, while at the same time furnished with modern components, similar to the loft apartments and university facilities nearby.
