Talatha Baptist Church, in Aiken, SC, has begun construction of a new multipurpose building and expanded space for worship and children. The new space, designed by Good City Architects, an architecture and interior design firm based in Greenville, S.C., is part of the master plan developed by Good City last fall. It will create a new entrance for the Church, and include room for both worship and fellowship. Clifton Construction of Evans, Ga. has begun construction, which they expect to complete later this year.
The Southern Baptist congregation occupies about seven acres on Talatha Church Road and has enjoyed significant growth in the last few years. Talatha, founded in 1827, is one of the oldest churches in the Aiken Baptist Association and has been meeting at the current location since 1839.
“The Talatha congregation has greatly benefited from working closely with Good City Architects as God guides and grows our church,” said Jordan Bird, pastor. “We are enjoying watching building begin and are excited about how we can serve God and our community through our facilities.”
