First Baptist Church Of Lookout Mountain Is Sold

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 - by Gail Perry

The First Baptist Church of Lookout Mountain, which is over 100 years old, has been sold.

Church member Reuben Lawrence told the Lookout Mountain, Tn., Commission that members see no growth for the church on Lookout Mountain. He said it is heartbreaking, but reality must be faced and in the valley the church can continue to do the Lord’s work.

The current members are interested in buying property and moving.

In a title search, it was discovered that a small part of the land would revert to the town if the church ceased using it. Mr. Lawrence asked for the city to abandon rights to the property and for the mayor to sign a quit-claim deed. The unanimous vote will allow the sale and the church members to move forward with their new building.

The new owner plans to convert the building into a home.

Tennessee Vols fans hit a new low at the end of the UTK vs Ole Miss last evening.

Has society really reduced itself to believing that reducing ... (click for more)

In the waning minutes of what would have been a glorious college football game, a gutsy final drive ... (click for more)
