Today's Sacred Sunday church is Martin Avenue Baptist Church in northeast Greensboro. It is a typical country church alongside a windy country road. The bright white wooden exterior just glistens on a sunny day. These Baptist churches have a common architectural style; the steeple, the cross, the triangular roofline, the building that extends to the back and has been added on-to at the side. Sometimes they are wooden and sometimes brick. Always, they are no-frills and take their worshiping seriously.
The country scene extends along the perimeter of Martin Avenue Baptist. Nearby, there are small, country homes, one of which has a 1950's Ford pickup truck parked in the church parking lot. It seems like the type of neighborhood where people come together in time of need. Likely, many neighbors belong to the church. Martin Avenue continues to the west until it intersects with Rankin Road. Martin itself continues down to McKnight Mill Road. To the east, it extends almost all the way to North O. Henry Blvd. As for the church, unfortunately, it doesn't have a website so we can't tell you about the history. We did learn from the marquee that Dr. James Talbert is the pastor of this beautiful church.
