I had literally just snapped a photo of the "storefront for sale" building pictured below when I heard someone remark through a car window "sold last week". A brief but all-smiles conversation and handshakes all-around later, I learned that Bethel Christian Fellowship's Mighty Warriors Ministry (remember the playground?) will be expanding into the storefront next door:
And although part of me wishes it were sold to a Top Chef contestant, a hip and happening gallery, or a used book shop entrepreneur, I'm glad for the space to be filled, and happy that this ministry can expand.
(one question, though: if the "exempting religious institutions from historic district/designation requirements" law is passed, does it include buildings that said institutions bought after the designation is in place?)
