JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The Fullness of Joy church members drove in a caravan to their new church on Sunday.

The old church building was located on Race Street. The church will now be in the former Nettleton Baptist Church.  

The move is something the church has been looking forward to, the church's pastor said.

"We have been in discussions with Nettleton since July of 2010," said Rodgers. "So, this has been almost a seven-year journey and we are excited to finally be making the move."

Rodgers said some church members felt the move was bittersweet. 

"We started in September of 94'," he said.  "We were in a hotel for a year, we were in a storefront for a year and then we moved here in September of 1996."

Rodgers said the church's relocation will provide them with many new opportunities for growth, 

"It provides a whole lot more room to do ministry," he said. Our sanctuary there seats a thousand, while our sanctuary here seated about 200."

He said the building also has multiple classrooms, two fellowship halls, and offices. 

Rodgers said the church is also planning a grand opening celebration on the third Sunday in May.
