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.
