Liberty is coming to Gloucester in January

Liberty, a multigenerational, multiethnic and multisite church with several locations in Hampton Roads, has announced the grand opening of its newest campus in Gloucester.

On Jan. 10, Liberty will open its doors for the first time in Gloucester at Gloucester High School. The portable campus will be set up and taken down each week by an army of volunteers Liberty calls its “Life Team.”

Services will be held inside the school, according to Jennifer Ward, marketing director for the church. Worship services will take place in the GHS auditorium and then the Liberty Kids and Students will meet in various classrooms. There will be signage once inside the building to direct people to each location.

Guests can expect to be welcomed and greeted by members of the Life Team, introduced to Campus Pastor Hobie McMahan, participate in the worship program, and hear a gospel-centered message from Senior Pastor Dr. Grant Ethridge streamed live from the Hampton campus.

Liberty Kids and Students will study the gospel through groups on Sunday mornings; adult groups will be available in the Gloucester community throughout the week.

“We hope and pray that many in the surrounding areas will come see what all the excitement is about at Liberty, where it’s not just church, it’s life,” a release stated.

“Our region is very spread out. Families and neighborhoods are separated by interstates, rivers, bridges, and tunnels. It’s our heart’s desire that every person know God, find community, serve people, and leave a legacy,” the release said.

“We believe that God has given Liberty a 10-year vision to have a campus within a 30-minute drive of every home in Hampton Roads.”

In addition to the Hampton campus, other locations for Liberty include Chesapeake, Suffolk, Williamsburg and Smithfield. Weekly services are also streamed online.
