"Built to be a Blessing"
Just over 100 years ago, our church campus on the corner of El Dorado and Vine was dedicated on March 25, 1923. Throughout the century of life and worship in this beautiful building, God has worked in such amazing ways. To give thanks and celebrate this extraordinary milestone, we are planning a weekend of festivities on campus. Our theme for the celebration is Built to Be a Blessing, and we will be celebrating the ways that this church campus has been a blessing for our congregation and city. We are inviting anyone who has been a part of our church’s story to join us for either or both of our planned events (see below), and we would love to see you!

Special Anniversary Worship Service on Sunday the 26th at 4 pM.
This special service will feature joyful worship, reflections on the history of our building, an organ piece to celebrate our historic E.M. Skinner organ, special guests, and more. Following the service, we will share a special meal catered by Grace & Mercy Charitable Foundation to continue commemorating God’s faithfulness shown in a century of church and community life. In order to make sure we have enough food, we ask that you RSVP by March 12th (but the sooner the better!) if you plan to attend the dinner. Of course, all will be welcome to join us whether or not they have RSVP’d.
We would absolutely love to see you at our 100th Anniversary weekend! Please contact our office with any questions, or to join in the fun of volunteering for the event.
