GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. The restoration of the Avalon Theater isn’t complete, but Sunday it opened its doors Sunday services.
The Downtown Vineyard Church has been holding their services at the theater for the past 4 years until construction began, and head Pastor for the church Paul Watson said it’s an amazing feeling to back in the heart of the community.
"It gives a place to have a Sunday service but it also gives us a place which is more importantly a place to participate in our community," said Watson.
The church was only able to hold the service in the lower portion of the theater since construction upstairs is still going on.
The Avalon was originally set to open, in June but had to push back the Grand opening until September.
But for now the Downtown Vineyard Church will be regularly holding their services there every Sunday at 10am.
