Today, we answer this emailed inquiry: I see construction at the old First Baptist Church. What's happening?
Shriver Nursing Services/Family Lives is renovating the building at 36 West Main St. for its new, expanded office space.
The local home health care agency bought the 144-year-old church for $443,000 on Aug. 15. The firm will move from rented space at 200 Friberg Parkway, Suite 200.
CEO Carolyn Brennan said Thursday the agency anticipates starting to move in around mid-February, and completing the move in March.
The space will include training rooms for nurses, she said. More storage space will be available, too.
The firm had sought a bigger building for about five years, Brennan said.
"We've really out-grown our space," she said.
