A Bangor congregation that moved seven times since its founding in 2009 finally has a permanent home, allowing its ministry to expand.
The Mansion Church last month celebrated the completion of renovations to 96 Center St., the former home of Bangor Floral. Two years ago, the nondenominational church was forced to abandon plans to move to 126 Third St. after the city said there was not enough available parking.
Originally home to Advent Christian Church, now located on outer Broadway, worship services are being conducted in the building for the first time in more than 30 years. The building was constructed in 1912 after the original was destroyed in the 1911 fire.
“We feel very blessed to bring this building back to being a church again,” Pastor Terry Dinkins said Thursday. “We’re looking forward to seeing what God’s going to do with us.”
