Recently, the Trinity Wesleyan Church (TWC) of Oak Hill completed work on its foyer and sanctuary after dedicating most of the year to an in-depth remodel of its facilities.

On Saturday, Sept. 11, the church will be hosting an Open House that will be open for the public to attend and view and appreciate the upgrades at its location in Oak Hill at 509 Elm St. The church will provide refreshments of coffee and cookies.

In a previous interview with The Telegram, a TWC representative stated that the upgrades consisted of replacing the existing carpeting with new hardwood flooring, painting the stage walls black, and implementing LED lights -- all to give the building a more modern look. Additionally, the old pew wood has been repurposed as new décor for its accent wall, countertops, trim, barn doors, window ledges, and other wooden surfaces. By doing this, church leaders hope to hold on to tradition while breathing new life into the sanctuary.

On Sunday, Sept. 12, TWC will be hosting a Reopening Service at 10:30 a.m. to celebrate the new sanctuary. Future events for the church also include a Nerf Gun Battle at Central Memorial Park in Oak Hill on Wednesday, Sept. 15 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and participation in the Jackson Apple Festival parade on Wednesday, Sept. 22.
