Westminister Presbyterian Church Holds Dedication

The largest Presbyterian church in Nebraska is located in the capital city. Sunday, members of the parish celebrated a special dedication service.

The one hundred year old WestMinister Presbyterian church underwent a million dollar renovation this past year.

The project was aimed to transfrom the church into a more modern catherdral that enhances its historic look.

The church has shuttered its sanctuary since last Easter for a massive restoration.

Reverend Andrew Mcdonnel says the renovation was more then just a facelift to the building. “Here we have this architectural jewel that we've been able to restore and even enhance and that's just very meaningful to have that happen so that we can share that and inspire people, i think a place like this makes people dream bigger dreams.”

The seven month process added theater style lighting,  woodwork restoration, acoustic design and a new infloor heating system.

Commitee member Jim Nissen said, “I think its been a great project the planning, organizing, implementation and fundraising and the construction of the project. It all went wonderfully well and its so gratifying and satisfying to hear all the comments about how the congregation is pleased with the end result.”

On November 9, there will be a community open house with festivities including the preschool children's choir, tours of the facility, and festive auction and luncheon.
