First Baptist holds first service in Lee County

May 4, 2008

Lee County -- This is the first Sunday members of First Baptist didn't meet in downtown Albany. First Baptist of Albany held its first service at its new location in Lee County Sunday morning.

First Baptist had been in downtown Albany since 1906 and became a landmark for the city. And though many were sad to move, members say location is not what makes a church.

"We chose this church not because of the location, but because of the people. So I am ecstatic to be able to worship with those people here," said Dr. Stacy Evans.

"I don't think it could have gone any better. We had a lot of folks who had been doing a lot of work this week. If you were here two days ago, you would have wondered if we could have ever got it done," said Senior Pastor, William "Butch" Knight.

This week First Baptist will be moving all of the office furniture, files, and computers into the Lee County location.
