Roopville Road Baptist Church broke ground on its new sanctuary February 10th of this year.
The $7.4 million, 54,021-square-foot rock facade building will house one of the largest Christian sanctuaries in West Georgia, seating 1,250 people and containing adjoining wings for children’s activities and music and office suites.
“It’s going to allow us to meet our current space requirements and prepare for future needs,” said Bryant Turner, Minister of Music and Administration. “In 2004, we outgrew our old sanctuary and we’ve been holding services in the Christian Life Center. Once the worship center is open, this will allow the Christian Life Center to be used as a full-time gym for recreational activities. We currently have to put out all the seats for services and then take them down again when we have recreational events.” The current old sanctuary building, with church offices, will continue to be used as middle and high school worship space and education spaces for Sunday school classes.
