October 6, 2019 -New Generation Community Outreach Center, formerly New Generation Church, opened its doors to the community in a dedication service in observance of the new building located at 119 Louis Barnett, Jr. Street, previously known as the Vanco Building. Pastor Joe N. Webb founded the new Generation Church, Inc. in October 2003 with a congregation of nearly 50. At that time the non-denominational church held worship services in the old Hook movie theatre on Prairie Ave. in Eutaw.. In September, 2013, the Greene County Commission approved the sale of the county’s Vanco property to New Generation Church, at fair market price not to be less than assessed value.
