Members and guests filled the Alpha Seventh-Day Adventist Church for a joyous Sabbath celebration for the grand re-opening and rededication of the newly renovated sanctuary and facilities. Special guests included gospel singer Zelma Neal and Dr. Charles Wesley Knight, the featured Guest Speaker. Inspiring music and celebration uplifted the congregation as the Praise Team and a combined Church Choir led the assembly in song.

He then called up Sam Williams for a special recognition for all his selfless work assisting with the construction and coordinating with the contractors and architects.

Heimsath Architects is proud to have worked closely with the Alpha congregation from the initial planning discussions through the completion of the renovations and addition. Braun and Butler Construction served as general contractors on the project. With the completion of the upgraded facilities, the church now has over 10,000 square feet of space to continue and expand their vibrant ministries. Future plans for a new fellowship hall and related site improvements are already being discussed.

Here's a clip of the combined choir as they filled the new space with joyous praise and song!
