PRINCETON – Princeton Bible Church will celebrate its 57th anniversary with a day full of worship and games on Sunday, July 11.
Pastor Curtis Odell, who grew up in PBC, said it will be good to celebrate not only the church, but God’s grace during this past trying year.
“There is no doubt that the last year and a half has been very trying on many. We have struggled in many areas as a community, as a church, and as a nation. There were so many uncertainties, but we were never uncertain about our Savior Jesus Christ,” Odell said.
“Throughout this entire time God has been so gracious to us to allow us to continue to worship His Son, Jesus Christ, corporately. Our celebration is an opportunity for us to look back over the last year and the last 57 years and celebrate the faithfulness of our great God.
“Our goal has always been and will continue to be to make the Gospel of Jesus Christ known and we want to celebrate God’s faithfulness in allowing us to do just that.”
The day’s festivities will start with 9:30 a.m. Sunday coffee served in the parking lot.
The morning worship will be held outdoors starting at 10:15 a.m. as PBC takes time to remember “God’s goodness through this past year.”
A picnic meal will be served in the gym, serving smoked pulled pork and Sloppy Joe sandwiches, beans, chips, salads and desserts.
A Celebrate Freedom presentation will be held at 1 p.m. with games and other fun activities, including a bouncy house for all ages to follow at 1:30 p.m. Watermelon and popsicles will be served.
There will be chairs and canopy tents set up, but attendees are welcome to bring their own favorite lawn chairs.
Princeton Bible Church, which was founded in 1964, is located on Route 34 north just outside of Princeton.
