175th Anniversary for church

Posted on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 11:21 am

The New Harmony Christian Church will be celebrating their 175th anniversary on Friday, June 15 with activities throughout the day.
The church will be open for anyone wanting to come by during the day and there will be memorabilia and pictures on display.
A light supper will be served at 6 p.m.
A “celebration photo” will be taken in front of the church at 6:45 p.m. This “tradition” began when the church celebrated its 60th anniversary in 1903. Champ Clark was the speaker at that celebration and an estimated 2,000 attended. We want to include as many in the photo as can attend this year. A history of the church will be presented at 7 p.m. with some special recognitions being included at that time.
The evening will conclude with an anniversary cake being shared. Everyone is invited to attend this historic celebration.
