After several months of having our property listed for sale, we entered into a Contract of Purchase with another congregation in March. Currently we are in the due-diligence period that will continue into the later part of June, at which time the closing date will be set.
While those contractual pieces are being finalized, as a church, we both continue to do vital work of worship and mission and we continue preparing for our relocation. Over the past months, we have spent time carefully evaluating options for where we might gather as a church after leaving our current location. In April, the church overwhelmingly voted in support of entering into an arrangement with the Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond. We are excited about this decision and look forward to our time housed within BTSR! We will occupy several offices on their campus, we will worship in their Chapel, and will use their classrooms and gathering spaces for our additional Sunday and Wednesday evening activities.
Sunday, July 16, 2017 at 10:30AM we will hold our final worship service as Ginter Park Baptist Church at 1200 Wilmington Avenue. This will be an important time of celebration and thanksgiving! The following Sunday, July 23, 2017 at 10:30AM we will hold our first worship service as Ginter Park Baptist Church at the Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond (8040 Villa Park Dr #250, Richmond, VA 23228). Likewise, this will be an important time of celebration and thanksgiving!
