FBC Reading Anniversary


First Baptist Church, Reading, recently celebrated its 190th Anniversary. Rev David Turley serves as the interim. Rev Dr David Skinner brought an encouraging message to the urban congregation. He shared how an urban pastor needs to keep one arm around the congregation and the other arm around the community. Currently, there are 5 congregations meeting in this sanctuary each Sunday, 3 of them are Spanish speaking. All 5 congregations will come together to celebrate Christmas Eve. Also participating in the worship service were former pastor, Rev Robert Blixt and former interim, Rev Dr Dan MacDonald.
