This Happened On 09/18/1977

Within a year of the first worship service, a building committee was organized and the search for a place to relocate the growing congregation was begun. Some hoped to purchase the school in which the church was meeting, but the ideal property, many believed, would be on Buford Road in Bon Air’s historical area. In 1977, a local realtor told Bob Ranson, then chairman of SPC’s Building Committee, about a house and five-acre property on Buford Road that was for sale. On September 18, 1977, the congregation voted to buy 2330 Buford Road for $150,000.
