PEORIA, Ill. -- A local church in the middle of a construction campaign is getting rid of quite a bit of its stuff.
First United Methodist Church in downtown Peoria is holding a huge public sale of its inventory. One organizer said with the renovation transition taking place now is a great time to pass on old treasures.
"We have fire extinguishers, office equipment, we have desks, chairs, lots of interesting things you can imagine a church that's been in one location for 180 years ends up with a few things in the closet,” said Dan Philips.
The two day sale is November 7, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and November 8, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The First United Methodist Church is located at 700 Main Street in Peoria.
