Open House and Re-dedication Ceremony for Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church Reconstruction by James J. Calmes and Sons, Inc.

(Appleton, WI)—Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, 709 W. Beckert Road, New London, held a “Thankful Celebration of Worship” to reveal their newly reconstructed building completed by James J. Calmes and Sons, Inc. The festivities were held Sunday, June 1 and kick-offed with 9:00 a.m. worship followed by an open house with guided tours, an ice cream social and a brat fry fundraiser.

Calmes was contracted to tear down and reconstruct Trinity’s fellowship hall and repair it’s sanctuary roof after a series of tornadoes swept Outagamie County in summer of 2013. “The biggest impact [of the reconstruction] is the beauty of the [building] and the good construction work that has been done,” stated Trinity’s Pastor Bil Sutlief. “It’s been fabulous working with Calmes.” Calmes committed to a completion date of May 15th, but were able to finish the reconstruction a month early just in time for Trinity’s April 13th Palm Sunday service. “It meant a lot to the congregation to be back for all our special Sundays—Palm Sunday, Easter Sunday and confirmation Sunday,” said Sutlief. “We’re very thankful for that.”
