Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, 1425 Mt. Moriah Road, Pell City, is to be commended for exceeding their goal for the annual Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions!

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic Mt. Moriah Baptist Church has rescheduled their Vacation Bible School to be held in the month of July. The announcement will be in this column at a later date. Mrs. Redena King serves as the Vacation Bible School Director.
