A new building for Emory Heights Missionary Baptist Church is taking shape, thanks mostly to volunteers in the community.
Walls are going up where Emory Heights Elementary School once stood.
“We want to grow. It is going to be big,” said Johnny Devine, a deacon at the church. “We are out of parking. If we have anything special, we don’t have enough room.”
Devine said on many Sundays the church has to put out extra chairs.
“We need to reach more people,” he said.
