Meridian, Mississippi A local church gathered on Sunday to embark on a new journey.
Macedonia Primitive Baptist Church in Meridian hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Sunday afternoon. The church says it has been a long time coming, but finally, it is building a new sanctuary to help make more of an impact in the community. Pastor Maurice Lee says the church isn't able to do this alone though.
"And we're just thankful for this day, for the many resources that God has provided us, especially through Pastor Harris here and his Builders for Christ group." Lee said. "We're just appreciative to them for all the work and service they're about to do for us."
Macedonia Primitive Baptist Church is located at 602 21st Street in Meridian.
