A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
YOU are the light of the world,
let it shine for all to see.
Join us for online worship service!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily suspended our regularly scheduled in-person service. We welcome you to worship with us online on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. CST on Facebook Live.
Old Sardis was the meeting location for local black leaders, headed by Civil Rights activist Fred Shuttlesworth, who came together to organize the ACMHR after the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was outlawed in the state of Alabama.
The church is planted in the Enon Ridge community, also known as “Dynamite Hill” because of the frequency of racially motivated bombings targeting black families in the 1960s. Because of its significance, Old Sardis is a part of the Alabama African-American Civil Rights Historic Sites Consortium.
Whether you come to tour our historic space or join us in worship, you’re going to leave as family. From our choir & music ministry, our youth department, and our mission ministry – we’ve made space for people with all gifts and interests to get involved.
Under the leadership of Reverend Camara J. Blue, we strive to be a beacon of light in our community. Our Deacon Ministry attends the weekly community Unity Breakfast, a meeting held between multiple city and church leaders to discuss the betterment of the community in regard to culture, church, and government.
