It’s been five years since members of Cadiz Christian Church first thought about building a fellowship hall, but the time has finally arrived. To celebrate this new era in the church’s life, an open house was held Sunday afternoon. Many church members and other curious Trigg County residents came to take a peek.

Pastor Tom Martin, who has served the church for 31 years, said that since churches tend to be conservative, projects such as creating new buildings are always slow to get off the ground. But once the church decided on it, everyone pulled together to make it happen, he said.

The church is not just attended by members, but is shared with members of the Presbyterian Chapel. Not long after Martin began his ministry there, he started preaching sermons for both congregations on Sunday. He said that both congregations pulled together to set the construction into motion.

The ground breaking ceremony took place in May of last year and construction began about a month later. The building has been finished for about two months now and already seen a lot of use. Martin said it has already been used by the Girl Scouts, local service sorority Beta Nu and for a high school reunion.

Until recently, the church had been using the building next door to gather for dinners and youth meetings, but the space was pretty limited. A few times, a large tent had to be pitched outside in order to host events.
