St. Paul's Episcopal Church has plans to grow in Brighton

From Michigan-

St. Paul's Episcopal Church, one of downtown Brighton's most historically significant buildings, is planning a major expansion to accommodate growth and to better serve the community.

The Rev. Deon Johnson said the church has launched a $3 million campaign for the expansion and renovation, which would create a new worship area, community room and youth room.

"It's exciting and scary," he said. "It's a huge undertaking."

The plans are conceptual, and the church hasn't submitted them to the city yet. However, Johnson has been meeting with city officials to discuss the project in order to create a facility that fits into the downtown landscape. The church sits above the Mill Pond gazebo area, where numerous concerts are held during the summer.

If rain threatened to cancel an outdoor concert, he said, the church's new worship area, with a capacity for 300 people, could be used as an alternative concert site.
