Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church has a new home.
In February 2006, the congregation vowed to do whatever it took to rebuild after their building caught fire due to electrical issues. Plus, there were issues with their insurance, so the congregation had to find funds to rebuild.
Thanks to generous donations from area businesses, including Stylecraft Builders, church goers have some nice new digs.
"The building is very different," said Jesse Brown, the pastor at Mount Zion. "It's larger. It's similar to the style of the older church, but it was smaller."
Plus, the new building on East OSR isn't even done yet. The congregation is adding on a cafeteria soon.
Mount Zion is celebrating 140 years of existence.
