Action Church is moving from its current location on Germantown Avenue into the former Spring Creek Road Baptist Church.
According to an email statement from Action Church Pastor Daniel Beard, Action Church closed on the purchase of the Spring Creek facility on August 28.
“Our desire is to continue to provide a place of hope, help, and restoration in the East Ridge community that we know and love,” Beard said in the statement. “We want to continue to take ministry outside of the four walls of just a Sunday morning worship service by putting our faith into action.”
Beard said that Spring Creek Road Baptist Church was one of the oldest churches in East Ridge. It will be relocating to Ringgold, Georgia.
Action Church, which was founded in 2015 and began weekly worship services on January 10, 2016, has outgrown three different facilities. Between 150 and 175 people attend worship services at the Church of God affiliate. Action Church’s new facility can accommodate more than 300 people.
Beard said the acquisition of Spring Creek Road Baptist Church has created a great deal of excitement in both congregations.
