ACREE, GA (WALB) - A former liquor store is getting new life as a church.

Members of Solid Rock Congregational Holiness Church were out making final touch-ups at the new location on Highway 82 in Acree.

The pastor had a vision for the church while driving down the highway. After a lot of prayer and work, they held the first service here August 7th.

"We feel like the Devil had it long enough," said Pastor, Randolph Rate. "It's time for God to get some glory out of it. We prayed and asked God to remove anything that would be a hindrance and we have no problem at all being in this church."

The church will have a revival service Saturday night at 7:00 p.m.
