SC church celebrates 50th anniversary

Open Hearts Fellowship, GCI’s congregation in Lexington, SC, celebrated its 50th anniversary on Sunday, July 16 with about 200 members, friends and guests attending. GCI Vice President Greg Williams (pictured at right) gave the sermon, titled “Seasons of Life, Seasons of the Church.”

Several charter members and/or their offspring were present for the celebration. Three former pastors and a good number of guests from at least three groups with former WCG members attended. One member summed up the event this way: “The room was beautiful, the music and service were inspiring, the food was delicious and the fellowship was wonderful.”

One thought on “SC church celebrates 50th anniversary”

  1. Anne and I had a wonderful and inspiring visit with the brethren celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the Columbia, SC congregation. It was inspiring to hear a message from Greg Williams, and to meet his wife Susan.
    David and Judy Allen, Maria Walker, Ted Caldwell, and Billy Harring and other members made us all feel welcome. It is good when brethren can dwell together in unity !
