Albany -- Trinity Metropolitan Baptist Church dedicated a new outreach Renaissance Center where it will serve the needy in the Albany community.
The faith-based organization provides several services such as literacy, juvenile rehab, and a food and clothing bank. The dedication included a public tour where people saw where services will take place. The center took four months to organize and planners are happy to finally begin their mission.
"Christ always was practical in the lives of people. So we wanted to do something practical, something hands on to assist and enhance in the lives of those who are in need of our assistance," said Joseph Ward.
The new center is located on Willie Pitts Drive in Albany, and it will be open to the public January 3rd.
