The Ebenezer Baptist Church in Charlottesville has many reasons to be grateful.
The church is celebrating 115th anniversary this year and had a ribbon cutting Sunday afternoon to signify the opening of its brand new elevator.
The original architecture of the church wasn't handicapped accessible, but church members had a vision to change that.
Over 50% of the congregation at the church is over 55 years of age.
Twenty years ago, church leadership decided they wanted to build an elevator lift to help facilitate the movement of senior members and the disabled.
On Sunday, that dream was made a reality.
