Friendship Baptist Church of Atlanta, Georgia held its last service this past Sunday, after over 150 years in existence. The church is moving to make way for a new stadium for the Atlanta Falcons.
The church was built in 1862 and it is also the historic building where Spelman College’s first classes were held. On Sunday, more people than usual flocked to the church to hear one last sermon within those fours walls and to bid farewell to a structure that holds a great deal of history. It was an emotional service.
The church has found a temporary home as they work through the details about where they will build a new church.
