A steeple will soon enhance the Walnut Hill Community Church in New Milford.

The church has received Zoning Commission approval to install a 29-foot-high steeple on its building at 19 Dorwin Hill Road.

Walnut Hill purchased the 5.7-acre property with church and gymnasium in January 2012 from Christian Life Fellowship.

The 8,280-square-foot church was built in 1976 and had been the site of services for the Christian Life Fellowship, formerly the Rock Church of Danbury.

The Dorwin Hill site is a satellite campus of Walnut Hill Community Church of Bethel.
