Two hundred years and counting


The front door greeters were kept busy Sunday morning as attendance was strong at the New Antioch Church of Christ’s 200th anniversary celebration. Many people who grew up in the church or formerly attended there returned for the bicentennial milestone. One thing emphasized in guest speaker Lee Mason’s message is the importance of having unity within Christianity for the sake of evangelism. During the anniversary service, the congregation sang a medley of old-time favorite hymns. Afterward, most attendees stayed for a catered dinner, held in the fellowship hall and outdoors.


Special music for the New Antioch Church of Christ’s 200th anniversary celebration was provided by James McIntosh, pictured, and the former New Antioch Teen Tones. McIntosh said that in his formative years the church on Antioch Road gave him a basis for his life. The Teen Tones was a group of female vocalists who, as teenagers in 1970 and thereabouts, visited area churches to uplift audiences with their harmonies. Six of the Teen Tones were able to make it back for the encore presentation.
