Now You’re Thinking; Good Idea – North Carolina Church Is Building an Amphitheatre in Anticipation for the Coronavirus Plague and Other Plagues in the Future

GASTONIA, N.C. — City Church in Gastonia will be constructing an outdoor amphitheater to hold socially-distant religious services in the event of future pandemics.

In the coming months, Dickie Spargo, City Church’s lead pastor, said they plan to break ground on a 75-acre site at their South New Hope Road campus.

“[It] allows us to be able to worship together,” Spargo said. “[It’s] also a place for our community to be able to gather when something like this happens again.”

When not using the space, the church plans to rent out the amphitheater at affordable rates for high school graduations, community concerts and corporate events.

“We feel like it’s going to be multifunctional, not only for our church but, we believe, for our whole county,” Spargo said.
