Bethel receive Federal Grants

Historic civil rights churches in Birmingham accept federal grants

U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell visited two Birmingham churches that were focal points of the civil rights movement on Monday to announce a new round of federal funding to preserve their historic buildings.

Bethel Baptist Church in Collegeville and St. Paul United Methodist Church in the downtown civil rights district both will receive grants to maintain and improve their campuses.

Each church will receive $750,000 as part of a $3.1 million that Sewell helped secure for historic civil rights sites in Alabama this year.
