NORTH FORK BAPTIST CHURCH
Emphasis on the “family” is an important part of the North Fork Baptist’s 140th Anniversary celebration. Patricia Wilson, assisted by Shirla Hudson, Anice Redd and Emma Redd, made a church family tree. The 40 x 60 inch fabric tree includes all of the current church members listed on individual leaves attached to the branches of the tree. Names of children in the church are represented by flowers at the base of the tree. The church family tree was accepted by Dr. Ben Gault, interim pastor, on behalf of the church on Sunday, March 23. It will be displayed in the church sanctuary during 2014 and later moved to a permanent location. Another family event continuing throughout the year is the recognition of individual families at the beginning of the worship service. Families may select any Sunday by signing up in advance of the presentation. Pictures are taken to be included as a part of the church history. The anniversary theme selected earlier by the congregation is: Founded in Faith-Growing in Grace; Honoring the Past, Celebrating the Present, Building the Future; 1974-2014.
