Troy Vogel's Koinonia Church now on SL Showcase

I was preparing for teaching a workshop on how to use Second Life for educational projects at universities when I was very surprised to see the church I built for the Koinonia United Church of Christ located on Xenia on the Showcase tab of the search window.

Here's a snapshot of the Showcase Page in the Second Life Client:

Here are more pictures of the church right after its completion. The current church looks a little different on the inside as I had to dismantle some of the ceiling due to the subsequent prim shortages of the client.
