Jim Bailey: Churches relocate as congregational patterns change


Park Place Church of God descends from Anderson’s original Church of God congregation at 14th and Brown streets. Its original Park Place location was at East Eighth and College Drive, moving to its present 501 College Drive site in 1960.

Irondale Church of God, originally on West 18th Street, relocated to Maple Grove on East 38th Street. The former Jackson Park Church of God, 2215 Nelle St., is now Main Street Church of God at 4211 S. Main. St. John’s Lutheran, originally near downtown on 14th Street, moved to 310 E. 53rd St. And Christ Lutheran, once on Main Street, is now at 2751 N. Scatterfield.

One church kept the name of its original location through three moves. East Lynn Christian moved to Jefferson Street, then relocated again to 522 E. 53rd St.

Numerous other moves, openings, closings, congregational mergers and longstanding congregational reflect a religious diversity in Anderson that continues to change with the multitude of needs and changes going on in the community.

Jim Bailey’s reflections on Anderson’s past appear on Sunday. His regular column appears on Thursday. He can be reached by e-mail at
