The Church of the First Born had a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday, at 3418 St Elmo Ave. behind the new Calvary Chapel church on Broad Street.

The purpose of the ground breaking was to celebrate a new sanctuary being built next to the existing church building.

Pastor Alfred Johnson established the church in 1978. Services were held in a storefront on Brainerd Road until they moved to the current location on St. Elmo Avenue in 1985.

The current membership is 145 and the current sanctuary holds 130.

The expansion project evolves a new 400 seat sanctuary and some renovation of the existing building.
