SAUK CENTRE, MN – Construction has officially started on the First Lutheran Church Remodeling project.
In August of 2022, two severe storms passed through the area, causing debris to land on the roof and plug the drain, which caused extensive water damage on the main floor and lower level of the education wing. The education wing was built in 1969.
The remodeling project consists of reconfiguring the current space to make a larger library/adult education room, adding a kitchenette, moving a restroom, and revising the nursery to add a mother's room. The lower lever is being refocused for children/youth ministry. A new Wi-Fi HVAC thermostat and security system are also being installed. The sanctuary will also be turned 90 degrees to allow for unobstructed sight lines. A new glass wall will separate the Christian Life Center and be used for overflow seating. New flooring and paint will create a more welcoming entrance throughout the gathering space and includes a new secure east door. A new exterior sign will also be installed.
