New Birth Community Church holds open house
New Birth Community Church held an open house Sunday to allow the public to see what the former Irwin B. Schwabe shirt factory has become.
The 12-year-old church has been holding services in the small white building on the other side of Clark Street, but had grown from 35 members to more than 300.
Earlier this year they were able to purchase the old shirt factory building and, with help, renovate it.
The new building has a sanctuary with will seat 350 most of the time but can be configured for more. There are several classrooms, a youth and after-school area, office space, a new baptistery, a small reflection garden, kitchen and meet-and-greet area, family restroom for parents with small children and more.
A large part of the building is still unfinished and will be renovated in the next, undated, phase to include more classrooms, administrative space and pre-school and daycare areas.
Jonathan Tucker is both founder and pastor of the church, which has an entrance at 408 Clark Street but one side of the church faces 614 Glade as well.
Sunday school begins at 8:30 a.m. Sunday with worship services at 9:45. Bible study for youths and children is a 6:15 p.m. Wednesdays and adult Bible study is at 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays.
