Cumming church plans 1st service in new church home

By Ken Stanford Reporter
CUMMING - A Cumming church will hold its first service in its new church home Sunday.<br /> <br /> Living Faith Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod is at 1171 Atlanta Highway. <br /> <br /> The road to this new church home has been a long one. The journey began with a small group of individuals meeting in a private home in 2000. The following year, they began meeting at a school in Cumming and organized a new church - Living Faith Lutheran Church. <br /> <br /> After a few other re-locations, the congregation moved to 103 Buford Dam Road and has resided there since 2007. Finally, in 2012, after looking for years for a suitable property, a site was found on Highway 9 South in Cumming. <br /> <br /> Groundbreaking activities were celebrated on May 5, 2013 to begin the initial construction phase. <br /> <br /> The Dedication Service for the new church will be held on October 5 at 4:00.
