Albany church celebrates new location

Albany -- After some hard work, an Albany church finally sees the fruit of their labor Sunday.

Church members of Greater Grace Church of God in Christ celebrated the completion of their new facility on South Westover Boulevard.

Even Albany Mayor Willie Adams turned out for the big ribbon cutting.

And though the congregation was rejoicing Sunday, this move was not an easy transition for them.

"We had the blessing of selling our facility before we moved, and we had to go into a temporary location. Anytime you move, it's hard, difficult and sometimes people don't like to move. But we were able to overcome all of those difficulties with love and prayer, said Pastor Stephen Stallworth.

The new location is double the size of their old building on South Slappey which will help them expand their ministry. This is one of a few churches relocating to that part of Albany.
