BONNE TERRE — A former grocery store in Bonne Terre has been transformed into a church's new ministry center.

Centenary United Methodist Church says its members pledged $1 million for the building project, called The Cornerstone. The church says the building is being used for its work and worship, but also for community outreach efforts, such as a recent coat give away sponsored by an alliance of ministers in the area.

Centenary United Methodist hopes the building will be a significant new addition to downtown Bonne Terre. The renovated building will be dedicated on Sunday.
