Historic Mt. Moriah Church hosting community worship service June 23

DOUDS — The historic Mt. Moriah M.E. Church, 1.5 miles north of Douds, will host an annual community worship service in conjunction with the annual Douds Field Day/Douds-Leando Alumni weekend at 10 a.m. June 23; a social time, with continental breakfast refreshments, will precede the service beginning at 9 a.m.

Leading the service will be the Rev. Phil Campbell of Bethel Worship Center, the Rev. Phil Ross of Zion Bible Church, the Rev. Oly Marcos of Trinity United Methodist Parish, and laypersons, with special music being provided.

Everyone is invited to the unique service.

The Mt. Moriah Church is a former Methodist country church built in 1892, replacing two former churches that were built on the site in 1846 and 1867. The church closed in 1958. It was acquired and completely restored in 1997 by the Douds Historic Preservation Association Inc. and has been the location for a number of weddings, funerals and special services since that time.
