Teachable moments

By MARK VINCENT,

Since I had to have knee surgery this week and couldn’t get around to interview and type, it seemed like a great time to ask Rev. Mark Vincent, Pastor of Clarke-Venable Baptist Church and President of the Mississippi Southern Baptist Convention, to write for the Decatur Community News. It is short but dripping with wisdom.  Thank you, Bro.




First Baptist Church of Union

By TERESA BLOUNT,

Newspaper documentation shows that a Primitive Baptist Church was built on the Decatur-Philadelphia Road in the early days of Union; that area would be 204 N. Decatur Street today. Then at some point, another church called Union Church that was used by several denominations was built next to it at today’s 206 N. Decatur Street.
