CORDELE, GA (WALB) - First Baptist Church of Cordele is moving from its downtown location after just over 100 years. Construction is complete on the new church off of Kelly Road.
Church leaders say the new facility makes them more accessible to residents in other counties now. One pastor says the move has been a long time coming.
"Really for a lot of our people, about a 20 year journey since we've owned this property since '97. To see god's faithfulness throughout all of it and see the faithfulness of our people as well, we're really excited about Sunday morning," said youth minister Zack Garland.
The first two services will be held this Sunday.
