SIDNEY — The Mount Vernon Baptist Church family and its pastor, the Rev. David D. Wynn, are celebrating the 151st church anniversary all day Sunday, Aug. 23.
Church school begins at 9:30 a.m., followed with morning service at 11 a.m. and a special afternoon service at 4 p.m., with the Rev. Ashton Allen and the Historical Mount Carmel Baptist Church Family of Cincinnati as the guests.
Mount Vernon was organized in 1864, one year after the Emancipation Proclamation, and there are members today who are descendants of the original group of seven who started the church.
The church is located at 606 Park St. All are invited to join in this great time of celebration, event organizers said.
