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. It was a fun kickoff to the new school year. Two upcoming events are scheduled for the next few weeks. 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. The youth have done a great job leading this quarterly scheduled event. A change from the regularly scheduled Sunday School at 9:45 a.m. and Morning and Afternoon Worship times of 10:50 a.m. and 4 p.m. will occur on 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.
