A New Home for the Holidays

Hoffberger Moving Services is well known and respected for its expertise in commercial moving for government offices, hospitals, research facilities, warehouse facilities, libraries and museums.

However, we sometimes get the opportunity to take on relocation projects outside the norm. I think we, as well as our clients, benefit greatly from the experience.

Such was the case when we recently had the privilege of helping New Psalmist Baptist Church in Baltimore, Maryland, move to its new campus in the city’s Seton Business Park. The 7,000-member congregation has built a spectacular worship center, affectionately called The Holy City of Zion, which includes a 4,000-seat sanctuary and 175,000 square feet of ministry space.

Our job for three days in mid-October was to move everything – offices, classrooms and the sanctuary – from New Psalmist’s former complex on Old Frederick Road in Baltimore to the new campus. A church is like a second home for its members, and we approached this move as if we were moving a treasured collection of personal belongings.

We carefully moved items ranging from religious artifacts to organs, drums and other delicate instruments that support the church’s world-renowned choir. Because of New Psalmist’s wide following, its services are televised each week, so we also had to move cameras and other sensitive broadcast equipment.

The really fun part of this move was we had the opportunity to work with and interact with literally dozens of volunteers from the congregation. (Very often, we work mostly alone, at night, as to not interrupt our clients’ business operations.) The congregation’s effort and enthusiasm were nothing short of inspiring.

This holiday season, we’d like to wish all the members of New Psalmist Baptist Church continued blessings in their new home!
