I don’t really know how I would feel about buying a church and doing something with it other than, you know, churching.

Is buying a church sacrilegious? I don't even know the right answer to that but I have to believe what my grandpa, who was a pastor, always told me. As long as your heart is in the right place, not filled with maliciousness, buying a church wouldn't be considered sacrilegious.

Additionally, I think that if the structure is vacant and tying up much-needed church money or if it's just sitting and decaying, then buying and repurposing it would be fine. If there's a way to use the structure to benefit the local economy or help the local community, that's awesome too.

I'm sure you've seen, just as I have, vacant churches turned into adorable little boutiques or coffee shops. As a matter of fact, one of my favorite places to bargain shop is at Susquehanna County Interfaith in Montrose. The thrift shop is inside one of the churches that sits on Church Street, and with its mission to put out good into the community, it is in the perfect spot.

Whether you're looking for a really cool property to transform into your living space or a space that you or your organization can use as a way to positively impact our community, this property on Upper Stella Ireland Road in Binghamton might be just what you're looking for.

Listed with Penny Pelletier of Realty Solutions Group, there isn't a whole lot of information on this property but what we do know is that the listing price is $99,900. The church sits on 0.56 acres of land, has a half bath, a huge kitchen, and a covered cookout area.
