New church service calls downtown area home

MONTGOMERY, AL. (WSFA) - Downtown Montgomery is buzzing today as a new church rolled out its inaugural service at the Montgomery Performing Arts Center.

Its not a traditional service, and its not a traditional location. Despite the lack of name recognition, folks turned out in droves to attend Church of the Highland's newest location.

Most parishioners call it a high-octane worship service , complete with a band, a local pastor, and a message simulcast from Birmingham.

Montgomery is one of seven satellite campuses for Church of the Highlands, following 4 branches in Birmingham, and others in auburn, and Tuscaloosa. So far folks say the new format is a big hit.
