WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Life Community Church found a home at Independence Mall in Wilmington this weekend.

The church officially celebrated its grand opening Sunday, but if you missed the excitement, don't worry, you'll have plenty of Sundays to visit in the future.

Pastor Tim Blevins believes the mall is a great location to welcome visitors.

"People don't normally walk by a church on the side of the road," said Blevins.  "Here they're walking by and they're already actually looking for something to do.  They stop right in and we're able to present who we are as a church."

Although the location has changed, Blevins says the message will stay the same.

The congregation will hold services every Sunday, letting out just in time for church goers to take advantage of sales and good food at the mall.  The church also opened a bookstore next to its place of worship.
