Corsicana — Missionary Baptist Church, 405 S. 15th Street, Corsicana. A wonderful time was had by all who attended the Family Back to School Party last Saturday on the church grounds.

The church body will observe the ordinance of the Lord's supper on Sept. 29 and the quarterly Youth Led Worship Service is planned for Oct. 6.

Lunch will be served at the Fellowship Hall immediately after the Youth Led Morning Worship  followed by a “You Pick the Song” service about 1:15 p.m. that will take the place of the 4 p.m. service that week only. The Adult Bible Study and Youth activities continue each Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. The Youth Directors are anticipating a soon return to the Friday Night Fun Night in a couple of weeks cooler weather permitting. Lots going on at MBC. Come and be a part of all or some and you will be blessed.
