Bibb Mount Zion Baptist Church Grateful for Room to Grow
The Bibb Mount Zion Baptist church began meeting in their new building on New Year’s Eve 2014, celebrating the coming of 2015 together in song and praise from their brand-new sanctuary.
Pastor Paul Little, who presides over the 500+ membership at Bibb Mount Zion Baptist, says the new building has been a blessing to the congregation. “It’s not only beautifully designed,” he said, “it’s also very practical and very functional.” The edifice includes a main auditorium that seats 650, a choir stand, and a dedicated “cry room” for parents with babies and young children. It also features a wing designated for administrative offices.
Pastor Little appreciated Stafford Builders’ level of communication, saying the firm was “very thoughtful, strategic, and intentional in including us” in conversations and decisions about the project.
The 11,500 square foot facility, completed in December 2014, is located at 3268 Avondale Mill Road, where it has served the community for over 150 years. The church was originally established in 1862 by a group of slaves seeking spiritual peace and strength to bear the frustrations and injustices of their lives. Today the church is still strong and growing rapidly, and Pastor Little says they’re grateful for the space offered by their new facility, and the positive experience of working with Stafford Builders.
Stafford is proud to have been involved in this project, and thrilled to see the congregants at Bibb Mount Zion Baptist worshipping joyfully in their new space.
