I am glad to see the building property go to a good cause. I have to admit though it makes me sad every time the Church sells older buildings I like them they have character verses todays "cookie cutter chapels". I remember there was 2 older chapels on redwood road one about 6200 s that was a historical site given to a Baptist church now demolished and also one that was next to West Jordan City Hall that was given for a seniors center but is now destroyed and turned into a court building. I guess I don't under stand why the church keeps some really old buildings and sells or gives away others? Why keep and fix up some and not others?
