Victory Baptist Church of Cooleemee is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

“Forty years seems like a long time as you go through it. But as you look back, it seems like it passed very fast,” said Pastor Shelby Harbour.

The church will celebrate with a series of meetings from Wednesday, April 20 through Sunday morning, April 24 with Neal Hatfield of Uplands Reach Camp and Conference Center, with a couple of special”events added in.

The celebration will begin with Neal preaching Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Then on Friday evening the church will host a “drive-in movie”. Sit in your car, or bring a lawn chair.

Saturday will be a mini concert with John and Lynn Powell and their band “Gaining Ground.”

Each of these services will begin at 7 p.m. There will be special music in each service.

The celebration will culminate on Sunday morning at 10:30 with music by Mona Jo and Friends, testimonies from long-time members, and a final message by Hatfield.

“God has been very good to our church over these years,” Harbour said. “All of the glory goes to Him, and this will be a wonderful way to celebrate our Lord and the past 40 years of Victory Baptist Church of Cooleemee.

“Everyone is encouraged to come out and join in as many of these services as possible.”
