Corinth Baptist Church of Keller invites you to join them on Sunday, Aug. 19 to help celebrate their historic 125th anniversary and homecoming. Services will begin at 10:30 a.m.
Dr. Steve Sells, Director of Missions for the Savannah Baptist Association, will bring the morning message, with special music provided by the Daybreak Quartet and the Corinth Baptist Adult Choir. Rejoice with church members as they, using historical photos and memorabilia as well as colorful local lore, trace God’s hand through a century and a quarter of service and blessings.
After the morning service there will be an old-fashioned "covered-dish" dinner in the Fellowship Hall, with plenty of overflow seating in the newly remodeled, screened and ventilated pavilion.
After lunch, Southern Gospel recording artists, the Daybreak Quartet, will present a concert of Southern Gospel favorites, including songs from their latest album "Wonderful Feeling." They will also take some time to perform requests from the audience in four-part acapella harmony. This Atlanta-based group can be heard on Christian radio stations nationwide as well as on Gospel Music Television. They have received several awards, including top honors from the National Quartet Convention in 1998.
During the past century and a quarter, thousands of lives have been touched and hundreds of souls saved through the ministry of this "little country church." Please join them as they celebrate our Godly heritage and look forward to even greater blessings in the future.
