South Fork Baptist Church has reason to celebrate. After 15 years of paying on construction costs, they are finally debt-free. Their current church building, which they’ve occupied since 1999, was dedicated on Jan. 4 during a special celebratory service.
The church, one of the oldest in the county at more than 230 years old, paid more than $259,000 toward their building in 2014 alone. According to Missions Director Machelle McDowell, it’s been a long time coming, but it’s been worth it.
