Bluff City congregation celebrates 125th anniversary

Published 3:02 pm Friday, November 23, 2018

The congregation of Bluff City United Methodist Church will celebrate homecoming and the 125th anniversary of the church Sunday, Nov. 25
The current sanctuary, built in 1893, turns 125 this year! To honor this momentous occasion, the congregation invites everyone, especially those who grew up at the church or who have been a part of the church, to join them for the celebration.
The special worship service begins at 10:30 a.m. with a turkey dinner to be served afterward. Everyone is invited to stay for lunch. Afterwards, there will be a special holiday open house from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Edward Cox House on Sells Road.
Methodism in our area has its roots at the Cox House, where people like Francis Asbury (one of the early leaders of Methodism in America), held revivals. It is a great example of pioneer living as the original house was built in the late 1700s.
There will be history, laughter, good food, fellowship and thanksgiving for the faithfulness of God and his people here in Bluff City.
