DELAFIELD, WISCONSIN: St. Michael's Anglican Church to get its own home

An area church will be getting a building of its own to call home.

St. Michael's Anglican Church, a member of the Anglican Church in North America, is moving from its current location at Lake Country School to an existing building on 612 Milwaukee Street. The building will undergo some minor renovation work, which will start this month, and is expected to be complete in time for services to be held Sunday, September 10.

According to the chairman of the church's vestry, or board Dick Schwaab, the church had been keeping an eye open the last couple of years, and in particular the last four to six months.

"We're fortunate to have some properties to look at. It's very, very difficult to find space suitable for a church, particularly one of our size," said Dick Schwaab, the chairman of the church's vestry, or board. "This one came into the picture later in the game of looking around, and because it had been a church, and used as a church, it really was a great opportunity for us, which we took advantage of as quick as we possibly could."

St. Michael's has been around since the spring of 2010, and it had been leasing space at Lake Country School since May 2015. It replaces Mercy Hill Church, the former building occupants, who have since moved to Lake Country Lutheran High School after outgrowing the space. Mercy Hill Church's parent organization sold the building to St. Michael's, according to Schwaab. He said the new space is about having a dedicated space to call home and to be more involved with the community.

"That's the main focus for us, was to be able to interact in a community of people and serve that community, and that's what we were missing at the school," Schwaab said.

Schwaab said the congregation is looking forward to worshipping in the new space and have their own home.

"We couldn't really ask for a better place to be than in downtown Delafield," Schwaab said. "It's just a vibrant little community."
