Ebenezer Baptist Church was founded in 1886, and has since stood as a high-profile center for African-American leadership and worship in Atlanta. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. began his ministry in this unassuming structure, and gained a national voice through his sermons from its pulpit. The Southern Christian Leadership Conference was also founded here. The church has recently expanded to a new sanctuary, but the original building continues to be a place of worship with services offered every Sunday and Wednesday. See website for visitors guide, weekly announcements, online services, and pastor bio.
Established in 1925, the Morningside Presbyterian Church was founded as a mission of the Atlanta Presbytery Home Mission Committee and First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta. Located in a scenic residential neighborhood in the Virginia-Highlands, the structure was designed by noted church architects Thomas and Waggoner of Philadelphia. Set on a wooded campus, construction of the church building began in 1946 and was not completed until 1949. In addition to Sunday services, the church maintains an active youth center, a counseling center, and numerous seniors' programs. Services on Sunday are at 11a.
The Cathedral of Christ the King keeps company with several churches on a scenic stretch of Peachtree Road in Buckhead. Its aged, stone exterior and stained glass windows have positioned the stately church as a local landmark since 1936. Seat of the Atlanta Catholic Diocese, the cathedral offers weekend services. The venue has a capacity of 700 persons.
