Cedar Creek church dedicated

CEDAR CREEK – What began as a plan for growth eight years ago became reality for the members of Cedar Creek Baptist Church when they dedicated their new building on March 17. The 5,762 square-foot building, according to Deacon Jim Chappell, is a single purpose sanctuary that seats 295.

“We are going to renovate our previous building to house classrooms, a conference room/library and other rooms,” Chappell said. “We plan to keep the choir loft for choir practice and add two classrooms.”

The building was constructed by Construction Services out of Lexington.

The church, whose members number about 200, was organized after a vision for a local Baptist church in the Cedar Creek community by member Jim Tuten. Twelve families began meeting on Oct. 7, 1979 at the Cedar Creek Grange Hall. A new facility was built in 1983 on Cedar Creek Road on land donated by the Joseph W. Dubard family. Additions were added to the building in 1991.

“We look forward to the future,” member Sandra Jones penned in the church history book, “one of glorifying God and being a beacon of light for Him in our community.”

The church is located at 1920 Cedar Creek Road in Blythewood.
