Though residents might not guess from looking at the outside, the First Baptist Church of Farmersville is turning 150 years old in 2015.

As this year’s on going celebration, May 31 has been designated as the church’s official 150th Anniversary Day.

To help commemorate this special event, during both the 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. morning services, special guest and former music minister, Glenn Jones, will be leading the worship. Brother Bart Barber will be sharing a timely and inspirational message.

Immediately following the 11 a.m. service, a group photo will be taken in front of the sanctuary, recreating a church photo that was taken of the church congregation 100 years ago.

Following the photo, a luncheon will be held in the church’s gym.

At 2 p.m., the church’s new minister of music James Cheesman and his wife, Megan, will officially begin their ministry at FBC Farmersville by performing an outdoor concert.

Special 150th anniversary commemorative plates will be available at a cost of $20 each. Those interested in purchasing one of these commemorative plates may place an order by calling the church office at 972-782-8428.

“We hope that you and your family will plan to attend the First Baptist Church’s 150th Anniversary Celebration on May 31,” Church organizers said. “Please invite your friends to join us for this special day.”
