ZBC 150th Anniversary Celebration (2015)
The days are getting closer before the Zion Baptist Church celebrates her 150th Anniversary. What a day of rejoicing it will be! We have so much more to do though. First, have you prepared your vintage outfit? We want to commemorate our 318 brave persons who left Court Street Baptist to form Zion Baptist Church. What do you think they wore during that Civil War Era? Let’s model our answer.
March 8— Worship and Praise like never before! Let us praise God for His faithfulness. Let us show God how grateful we are for allowing us to be able to carry out his work today. With our combined resources Zion, we can do more than we could ever dream possible. Each adult is being asked to contribute $150.00 for each year of Zion’s existence. Each youth is being asked to donate $15.00, and our children 12 and under $1.50. Thank each of you in advance for your contribution. You can find your special anniversary envelope among your March package of envelopes for this quarter.
March 15 — WITNESS a historic worship experience at 4:00 P.M. at the Court Street Baptist Church. Zion, Ebenezer, and Court Street Baptist will praise God together, and each of the three pastors will deliver a brief message. You will not want to miss this experience. The offering will be donated to the Southern Baptist Convention.
April 17 & April 18 — Wear something really special that will blend well with a blue backdrop for a family portrait. We want your family and any other former Zion family to be included in the church’s Anniversary Pictorial Directory. Invite former Zion members and submit their contact information to any Sesquicentennial Team Member by the Fourth Sunday in February. More specific information will be included in the March issue of the Zion Gazette. Thanks!
