Truth Lutheran Church
Truth Lutheran Church has moved from 110 South Washington Street to a new facility on the northwest corner of Mill Street and Bauer Road on Naperville’s north side. You may remember the Chinese-American Church became embroiled in the debate over plans to develop the historic old Nichols Library, where Truth Lutheran held services for 20 years. Developer Dwight Avram purchased the building from the church in 2017 with the understanding that he would build this new facility for Truth Lutheran. Development plans for the original site on Washington Street are ongoing.
