The altar at the Sturgeon United Methodist Church was originally constructed in 1887. Most of the church's congregation is older than 70, and pastor Mike Will said he's tried to shift the focus of the church from being concerned about attendance numbers to expanding the church's ministry to a thrift store and a food pantry run out of the building.
