Steeple Sunday #33:North Raleigh Church of the Nazarene

Happy Sunday to you all.  We hope these yellow posies
brighten your day.

In 1972, six families began to meet discuss the growth in North Raleigh and the need for a new church.  They received the blessings from the NC District to form North Raleigh Church of the Nazarene, which would be the first of its kind in the city. In 1973, a three acre farm on Millbrook Road was purchased.  The church began construction of a multipurpose building moving in 1974.

In the 1990's the church's attendance was approaching 300 and a need for a larger facility became a priority. A large piece of land was purchased and in 1993 the contruction began.  They
relocated to their new building on Strickland Road in April 1997.

 North Raleigh Church has been the catalyst for the starting of other congregations in the Triangle area.  The front and sides have lots of shruberry making it hard to get other views.
Thank you for stopping by today.
