Ga. Church Holds Final Service in Historic Building

Ad Feedback

The Christ Church congregation in Savannah, Ga., is without a worship facility after losing its legal battle to stay in the historic building where members have worshipped since Georgia was a British colony.

The church is one of many that broke away from the liberal Episcopal Church, U.S.A.

Founded in 1733, the first pastor of the church was John Wesley. The church is also famous for being the home church of Juliette Gordon Lowe, founder of the Girl Scouts.

Members held their final worship service in the building last week.

But what followed was a tangible expression of Christian unity.

The pastors and members marched down the street and were greeted by members of the local Independent Presbyterian Church. The Presbyterian congregation has taken the former Christ Church members while they look for a new church home.

"Because your God is our God, because your Christ is our Christ, your Gospel our Gospel, we would like you to understand our buildings are your buildings," Terry Johnson, the pastor of independent Presbyterian church said.
