In April 1999, the Hope Evangelical Covenant Church moved into their new sanctuary at the mall, seen here. It utilized space previously occupied by The Pavilion. The concept of a shopping mall church came about in the early '60s, when a sanctuary opened at Boston's NORTHSHORE CENTER. There were also mall churches at Philly's PLYMOUTH MEETING MALL and New Jersey's BERGEN MALL.
