CORDELE, GA (WALB) - After a couple of years in the making First Baptist Church Cordele finally opens its door at their new location.
As you walk through the front door of the newly built First Baptist Church of Cordele you are greeted by Ronnie Musgrove.
"Good Morning (How are you) doing well,” said Ronnie Musgrove, greeter.
And as he greets everyone he hands them a gift to celebrate the opening of the new building.
"A little cross that goes in your pocket and a little card that goes with it and explains what the cross is,” said Musgrove.
It took the Church two years to build this location.
"There were a lot of those who didn't believe that the church would ever be built."
But now it is here with new faces.
"People that we haven't met before they're comin in they're checking it out."
Some came in because of the advertisements around town.
"We sent fliers out the past couple weeks. They got one of the flyers and they here to visit,” continued Musgrove.
Ronnie feels they will see more people because the church so close to highway 300 and 75.
"We hope to put up some build boards along 300 and 75 pointing in the direction of the church and have some people say hey we want to be a part of that."
But the biggest hope is more people will come in the door.
"Good Morning you are welcome."
For Ronnie to meet and greet.
"This is where God brought me and it's been a joy and a pleasure ever since."
This is only one of five phases in growing the church.
