Sherrodsville church planning 65th anniversary celebration

A 65th anniversary celebration is planned at Sherrodsville Wesleyan Church Nov. 12 at 10:30 a.m.

The celebration will begin in the sanctuary with a time of worship, celebrating what God has done, is doing, and will do through the church.

Many previous pastors will share in the special time including special speaker, Rev. David Paul, who was pastor at Wesleyan Church from 2003 to 2011. The celebration will be followed by a covered dish dinner in the Fellowship Hall, with testimonies and stories.

It all began in 1952 when Mrs. Myrtle Clow was visiting in Sherrodsville. She felt the need for a church in Sherrodsville and spoke to her pastor about it. Rev. Willard Dunn, then pastor of Canton Second Wesleyan Methodist Church, approved the idea and a canvas was made of the community in interest of the first service.
