A Seattle strip club known for prostitution, strippers and FBI stings is being transformed by church leaders into a Christian community center in an effort to expand their outreach ministry efforts.
Bethany Community Church is currently in the process of converting Sugars, the former strip club, into their central offices and making it a coffee shop as well, where they intend to serve the community year round.
"When we first entered the building it had a very dark feeling; smoke filled carpets, black painted ceilings and walls, and mirrors everywhere," Scott Sund, associate pastor at Bethany Community told The Christian Post.
"Before we started demolition, we met on Easter weekend and prayed and sang in the space to usher in the new story God was going to write through this place. It's God's story, we just get to play a small part."
