SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A vibrant group of worshippers brought a historic Springfield building back to life Sunday with a ribbon-cutting and service.
Breakthrough Worship Center officially began its ministry at 133 Longhill Street today, the former home of the Melha Shriners.
The church was founded in 2015 and purchased the Mehla Shriner Center this past March.
It’s opening worship service was attended by its faithful base and curious community members eager to see the old building rejuvenated and put to use for the community.
Elena Abashina, Secretary of the Church told 22News that the Breakthrough Worship Center is excited to invite local community members to come and worship.
“We are excited to make this place a place where we worship the Lord as well as provide a place where the community can come and find their time with god,” said Abashina.
All of BWC’s activities and services will be open to the community.
