The Blue Ridge Community Church
Renovated Grocery Store
Lynchburg, VA
The Blue Ridge Community Church is in a building that was originally a Food Lion grocery store in Lynchburg, VA. Before the church moved in, the building was also used by the Salvation Army. The church previously met in school cafeteria, an auditorium, a gym, and even a night club. The current sanctuary seats 500 people, has a cafe and large lobby, several classrooms and a youth center. There are two services on Sundays, and the congregation has about 1,000 people. The church has grown from a small bible study of about 15 people that began in the mid-1970's. The church has found that growth is greatly affected by location, as they have moved around from place to place. Their current location is central, and offers ample space for their growing needs.
