Commentary by Charlie: Seattle’s Black Churches

Over a dozen Black churches sit on land that is worth millions of Dollars to developers. Goodwill with its downtown View sitting on nearly a block of prime property for development, Mt Zion, First AME,New Hope etc are worth their weight in gold to some of these people. They have already moved the members out and many of these churches are now struggling financially..but the games have just began.

After 66 years, Central District church wakes up to hate crime

But who ever sells first and moves close to where their members are will be the larger Black churches in the future.Many of the members of the central area churches are now at New Beginnings in Renton (which is now the largest Black church in the NW) and Casey Treat. Its a long drive. Our community has moved and we have some major decisions to make or others will make them for us. There is room for only one major Black Baptist church in the Central Area..
