The new church facility at 1165 W. Silicon Circle off of Dixie Drive is the former home of another church and a call center, Seventh-day Adventist First Elder Robert Ford said.

The move was made possible by a growing congregation.

“We’ve been renting jointly with another small evangelical church … then over this last six months, we purchased what was once the New Life Christian Center,” Ford said.

The new building is 12,000 square feet and has a large fellowship hall, and room for a sanctuary and classrooms.

“Now that we own a facility … we hope to start evening meetings and other kinds of social events,” Ford said.

Offerings may include senior citizen lunches, nutrition classes and hosting Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

Formerly located at 188 East 300 South Street, the church has been meeting in its new facilities near Dixie Drive for a couple of months, Ford said.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony and an open house held Nov. 8 were attended by business, community and church leaders.

Several prominent Americans are members of the Seventh-day Adventists Church, Ford said, including Desmond Doss, whose story is featured in the recent film “Hacksaw Ridge” and former presidential candidate Ben Carson.
