Atlanta’s Oldest Black Church Closes!



It was an emotional morning, Sunday at Atlanta’s oldest African-American church. After more than 150 years, Friendship Baptist held its final service before moving to make way for the stadium for the Atlanta Falcons. On this Sunday, there were three times the number of people who typically flock to this historic building – here to see one last baptism, one final sermon before these walls come down. 

 The legacy stretches back to 1862, in a building that gave birth to Spellman College. The first classes were held in the church basement. The first classes were held in the church basement. Rev. William Guy was pastor here for thirty-seven years. Source:
