It may look like a mess to outsiders, but to members of Mountain Pointe Ministries, it’s a dream coming true. Church members are excited to see building begun on their new 400-seat sanctuary with two nurseries, a choir room, and restrooms. Pastor Bob Bryant says contractors – and church members – hope to have the construction complete by July. Located on Straight Mountain at 47350 U.S. 231, Oneonta, the church has a congregation now of around 300 but is growing steadily, as it sits near the corner of Blount, St. Clair, and Etowah counties and its membership is drawn from all three. The church has two worship services at 8:45 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. each Sunday with Sunday school in between.
