TULSA, Oklahoma -- A Tulsa church congregation celebrates a multi-million dollar makeover. Dozens of members gathered to watch as the First Baptist Church in downtown Tulsa re-lit its steeple Sunday evening.

As part of a larger $6 million renovation project, the church installed a special LED light system on the steeple that is highly visible and can even change colors.

"We wanted to tab the steeple and do what steeple was originally designed to do: call attention to a place where people gather to worship week in and week out the lordship of Christ," said Deron Spoo with Tulsa's First Baptist Church.

Along with the steeple upgrade, the church at 4th and Detroit added a new student center and coffee house.

First Baptist also replaced a time capsule that was discovered during the renovations. The 1952 capsule had photos and documents from the year it was placed and from 1915 - from the original church building on the site.
