ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A church that has a rich history in Albany has broken ground on where their new 12.5 million dollar facility will be located.

The Mount Zion Baptist Church congregation along with community leaders met at the corner of Westover and Oakridge Sunday afternoon for the groundbreaking.

The new sanctuary will be able to accommodate 1,900 people. It will also have a new education facility, a new office complex, and even their own television studio.

"This new facility is about serving this community. When we talk about expanding our capacity, it's not for the glory of all of the folks here. It's for the glory of God. And we have a passion at Mt. Zion for serving the community," said pastor, Dr. Daniel Simmons.

Mt. Zion has been in its current location on Martin Luther King Drive since 1972. And the church plans to continue to keep that site after the new church is complete in December of 2009.
