CARROLLTON -- The construction of the new education annex at the Carrollton Baptist Church is moving right along, and the church family is anticipating one of the biggest events the church's long history - moving into the new building.

"It's coming along well, and we're all excited," said Dr. Bernard Taylor, the longtime music minister at the church. "We're pleased with the work, and we're all anxious to move in."

Taylor said space is currently the issue at the church and feels the problem will be resolved once the new education annex is complete. A finishing date, according to Taylor, is projected around late February or March.

Taylor said Carrollton Baptist Church minister, Fletcher Moorman, has already begun planning a dedication service at the education annex's completion.

At an August groundbreaking ceremony, over 200 people were in attendance at the ceremony, and Taylor said it only shows the excitement for what is to come for the church.

"Everyone is looking forward to the new building," Taylor said. "We are lacking space, and everyone is anxious and excited right now."

The complex, which will cost close to $1 million, will consist of several classrooms, restrooms, and a fellowship hall that will be connected to the church.

Rozier Construction Company is overseeing the construction of the complex.

Carrollton Baptist is one of the oldest churches in North Mississippi and was organized August 1833 as Bethel Baptist Church. The name Carrollton Baptist was changed after the move to Carrollton from Coila. The present building was built in 1894.
