Atlanta Church Foreclosed, Evicted

A church in Atlanta was evicted after its congregation failed to pay its monthly mortgage. All of the belongings inside the parish were taken to the parking lot during the eviction. Church leaders said Thursday that the bank could have been a bit more forgiving.

Greater Works Assembly found itself in the sinking sands of financial difficulty. On Thursday, with Fulton County Marshals standing watch, movers evicted the church from its building on Jonesboro Road in southeast Atlanta.

“It seems that churches are easy targets for banks these days,” said Pastor Winston.

And in a neighborhood blighted with foreclosed houses, foreclosing on the house of God seemed an especially cruel irony, Atlanta’s WXIA adds.
