Midway Christian Church was chartered on July 20, 1844 so 2019 marks our 175th Anniversary! Although we will celebrate this milestone throughout the year, we "made it official " on July 7. Following worship service that day, we gathered for a special day-long celebration for members as well as former members, ministers, and friends of Midway Christian.
Here's a recap of that day and all things Anniversary!
