"Our church has transformed itself quite a bit," Pastor Scott Volland said. "There are so many things going on at the church."
The church's name comes from John 4:14, which says, "Whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
Volland, who has been pastor at the church for 6 1/2 years, said he wants the new name to reflect the congregation as a contemporary-style, nondenominational church. He said the church's base is now young adults and families.
"With a 180-year history, we certainly do not disregard the foundations of the church, but we feel it's time for a new image in the community," Volland said.
"We're positioning ourselves in the community as Lifespring Church, where there's no denomination, but anybody can come and be ministered to where they are."
