Florence Christian Church is extending a radical welcome to our community by installing 2 ADA compliant bathrooms with showers and 2 industrial washer/dryer units in what used to be a crowded storage room.

Opening March 1, 2022 to the public, we will offer shower and laundry facilities to any who seek the dignity and comfort of a warm shower and a fresh set of clothes.

Below you can keep track of the renovation progress.
