Celebrate Central Baptist's 96th Anniversary

You are cordially invited to celebrate the 96th anniversary of Kingsport's oldest African-American church.

In an anniversary that goes right along with the upcoming centennial of the birth of the Model City, Central Baptist Church is planning to celebrate 96 years of serving the Riverview and Kingsport communities.

The homecoming event is planned for Sunday, August 17th, 2014.

At the morning worship service, the Reverend Lamar Gordon will preach the Word. Rev. Gordon is the son of beloved former pastor Frederick Gordon, who ministered at Central back in the 1980's. Pastor Gordon passed away only a few months ago. The morning worship service begins at 11 AM.

Dinner for the congregation will be served immediately after the morning service.

For the afternoon service, the church welcomes the Reverend Danny Johnson and the choir from the Thankful Baptist Church of Johnson City.

Being that Central was started in 1918, one year after the city of Kingsport was chartered in 1917, as the growth of the Model City blossoms, so goes the growth of the Central Baptist Church in the Riverview community.

Please come out and help celebrate!
