Greensboro is getting a new church. The New Zion Missionary Baptist Church is being built just south of Southside, in the Old Ashorboro community at Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive. ADW Architects out of Charlotte are responsible for the design of the building and Davie Construction out of Clemmons is the general contractor. The 29,000 square foot structure is being built on 5 acres of land.
Currently, New Zion's home is at 1319 MLK Drive in a building that was constructed in 1929.* The new church will be completed sometime in 2016. It is well positioned to meet the needs of a part of town that is gaining population, especially in light of the fact that UNCG has expanded nearby on Lee Street (Gate City Boulevard). It will be fun to chart the progress of this new church. Happy Sunday. Oh, and to the kayaker above, happy day on the water!
