Marion church celebrates 50th anniversary

MARION — Marion Baptist Church has reached a significant milestone this year — 50 years of worship and service to the community.

To celebrate, the church is holding an anniversary Open House on Saturday, July 28.

The public is invited and area residents are welcome to stop by the church between noon and 3 p.m. for luncheon and a tour of the buildings. All families who attend will receive an anniversary booklet outlining the history of the church and a commemorative pen.

Displays and exhibits with photos, news articles and memorabilia will trace the early years of the church and document key moments in its growth and development. Members will be on hand to answer questions and provide details about the role the church has played in the community since its founding.

Mark your calendars now — bring your family and friends to meet Pastor Dennis Williams, his wife Evelyn and members of the congregation. Don’t miss this enjoyable afternoon of celebration and fellowship.
