Calvary Missionary Baptist Church dedicated its new edifice Saturday in Richmond Hill.
The day’s events began with a processional of congregants from the old church to the new, 15,000-square-foot edifice at 200 Danielsiding Loop Road. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the new church’s front entrance prior to the service.
The Rev. Anthony Corbett Sr. of Lundy Missionary Baptist Chapel in Macon was the main speaker of the service. Music was provided by the Lundy Chapel Church Choir.
The Rev. Stanford Anderson, who has led Calvary Baptist Missionary Church for 11 years, thanked his church family during the ceremony.
“I want to thank you, Calvary, for your faith on this, your steadfastness, your support for this building campaign and building for the kingdom of God,” he said. “Thank you for your commitment, thank you for your love and support.”
According to the church’s website, calvarymbcexperience.org, the first services for Calvary began in 1871.
