DARIEN, Conn. -- Members of the Noroton Presbyterian Church along with its building and mission partners came together to rededicate the renovated complex as part of the church's Foundations of the Future campaign during a ribbon-cutting ceremony Sept. 20.

"We were blessed to have faithful members build our church in the 1950s and it served us well through the 20th century," said Senior Pastor Sam Schreiner. "Now, we are pleased to perform this extensive renovation to serve the church and community well into the 21st century."

Architect Dennis Kowal and General Contractor Gus Papajohn gave keys to the congregation. Maude Pettis, the oldest member of the church at 101 years, performed the ribbon cutting along with 6-year-old Anna Keehlwetter, who has the best Sunday School first-grade attendance, Building Committee Vice Chair Jean Ann Bollman and Senior Pastor Schreiner.

The Foundations of the Future campaign began in May 2014 as a way to provide new and renovated fellowship, meeting, performance, office space, improved ADA compliance and higher level security for children.

During construction, 3,000 square feet of space were demolished and 14,000 square feet were gained at the center of the complex.
