SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) -- The First United Methodist Church of Sherman revealed its newly revamped building after a 17-month long renovation project.
The $3.9 million project was the church's first major renovation since it was built in 1955. It's one of the area's oldest churches.
The construction project was completed to revamp the heating and air units, walkway, and to update the buildings.
At Sunday's consecration, churchgoers braved the cold weather for a plaque reveal and to hear some church leaders and community members speak about the transformation.
Communications director Gil Nelson said they're excited for the next generation of the church.
"It's extremely exiting after 65 to years to have this great renovation and be able to move on to this next generation of ministry is a wonderful and exciting thing to have happen," Nelson said.
