It used be an old run-down pool. Now, Trinity United Methodist Church in Springfield has opened a community space in their church. It's a way to connect neighbors and congregation members.
"I think the community room is another great place where we can let the community in and let them appreciate what we are doing for the community and the neighborhood. So, it's just a huge opportunity for the church and the neighborhood," said Nicole baker.
Baker says fundraising for the project took about a year. They began working on the project just a few months ago.
They're excited to use the room for different functions in the years to come.
