HALL CHURCH 50th ANNIVERSARY

The Word of the Lord has been coming forth from the Hall Church for more than 50 years. For some period of time the American Sunday School Union held Sunday school at the Hall school building. In 1952 the families in the area undertook to build a church building.

On June 23, 2002, a celebration of thanks to the Almighty was held at the church. Around 100 people attended one or more of the three services held that day. Not much preaching but quite a lot of singing and praising God took place, and lest we forget, wonderful food. We were there and here is some of what we saw. We hope you enjoy the pictures. Feel free to copy and print.
