MOULTRIE — On Friday Sept. 26, Sardis Primitive Baptist Church started its 174th annual meeting. Some of the older churches called these meetings, “Big Meeting,” since it is a gathering of many churches to one area for an annual conference.

There was a dinner at 6 p.m. on Friday evening followed by an evening service beginning at 7 p.m. The Saturday and Sunday services will begin at 10:30 a.m. with lunch being served after each service. The communion service and foot washing will be observed after lunch on Saturday around 1:30 p.m.

The public is can attend any of these services. It will be a chance to hear some “old fashion singing (no notes in their books) and preaching.”

Sardis Church was constituted on July 26, 1834, and has been holding meetings on the fourth weekend of each month since that time. It is the second oldest church in Colquitt County. Some visitors come from many miles to attend this meeting that their parents and grandparents attended as members. Elder Dwight Marshall is the pastor. For additional information anyone may call Homer Eldridge at 324-3237.
