THS Board member Don Bohatka from Milwaukee takes us to church. Grab a tambourine !
Epikos Church is taking over the former Paradise Theatre, West Allis, Wisconsin as a second facility. Don notes that they actually bought the building from another congregation which did much rehab work. We saw this 1200 seat Urban F. Peacock design during the 2007 THS conclave which Don and the late Dr. Tom DuBuque organized.
“The growing church now hopes to replicate that success in West Allis, where Epikos is embracing a growing trend in the world of church development – and saving a landmark building in the process. ‘It would have been horrible to take a wrecking ball to it,’ Parmelee said of the former Paradise Theater, near S. 62nd St. and W. Greenfield Ave., which is being transformed into a satellite site for the growing church . . . “
