New Life to Celebrate 35 years this weekend

Star Staff Reports

New Life Reformed Presbyterian Church located at 133 Munford-Atoka Avenue in Munford is planning an event for Nov. 18.

Thirty five years ago, on Nov. 20, 1977, a congregation in Munford was constituted a church. The people had left the Presbyterian Church in Munford because of its continuing affiliation with the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A., which was considered to be liberal in theology and un-Biblical. The new church became a member of the Presbyterian Church in America, formed in 1973. It was given the name, New Life Presbyterian Church. Later the name was changed to New Life Reformed Presbyterian Church, the addition giving witness to the fact that the church was based on the Scriptures and taught and preached only what was Biblical. This church takes the entire Bible as the revelation of God and His will for our obedience, salvation, strength and comfort.

On Sunday, the church will be celebrating its 35 years of life and ministry. With praise to God for His provision of ministers, officers, and teachers, the church will remember Chuck Coe, the founding evangelist, and Robert Hastings, who served as minister for seventeen years. Dick Bibb and Mr. Vernon Talley served with others as ruling elders. Talley and Dr. James Miller are the current elders with Kenneth Fletcher as the deacon. John Wingard is the present minister for this congregation.

The church would be delighted to have guests, friends and neighbors, to attend the special service of celebration on this Sunday. After the worship of God, the entire congregation will have a church fellowship dinner hosted by the Women in the Church organization. For more information, call 476-3316.
