BIG NEWS - WE ARE BUILDING A NEW CHURCH!
Recently, SCRBC prayerfully considered selling our property in East Ridge, Tennessee to build a new church in Ringgold Georgia. There were several reasons behind this but mostly because the majority of our members were driving in from the Ringgold area already and we believe God was simply calling us to do so. To say God has been at work behind this decision would be an understatement. Within a week of listing our property, we accepted an offer from Action Church (a church already well established in East Ridge that was outgrowing their current building), by the third week we secured temporary office space, during the following 3 weeks we moved the contents of an entire church, and then purchased 5 acres of land in Ringgold. GOD IS IN ALL OF THESE DETAILS!
Please know this decision was not taken lightly. Spring Creek Road Baptist Church has ministered to the East Ridge community in some form for 163 years. While we will miss the area we've called home for so long, we are excited about where God is sending us now. God doesn't call us to stay and be comfortable. When He calls you to go, you must be obedient. Please join us in praying for Action Church and their ministry in our former building and we hope you will pray for us as we begin this new chapter. We will have a new location, a new name, a new building, and an amazing body of believers. All for God's glory!
