It’s been a well known tradition that every year for at least the last 50 years, Mt. Horeb hosts their annual Homecoming celebration. Everyone comes, even those who aren’t really coming home! Everyone is welcome, and there is always plenty of great food and friendly people to fellowship with. This year is no exception to the rule, although we hope that it is even better than it’s ever been, because of Blanco County’s 150th Sesquicentennial festivities which have been going on all around the county!
Back in the 1800’s the people in Peyton Colony originally held church in their homes, and then finally Rev. Jack Burch pitched a tent to hold church. They put their resources together, and the beautiful little white church with blue stained glass windows went up, and it’s still standing today. They named it Mt. Horeb Baptist Church. It is located on Peyton Colony Road, which is also called County Road 409, (off of Rural Route 165) about 9 miles east of Blanco, Texas; and all the members are extending a warm invitation to join them this weekend, Sunday, October 19th, 2008.
Deacon Lawrence Coffee has been teaching Sunday school for the past ten or twelve years, and he’ll start off the day by teaching the Sunday school lesson on "A New Vision" which will begin at 10:30 am. There’s usually some great conversation and interaction during Sunday school, but no matter who’s talking, when it gets close to 1:00 pm we’re breaking for lunch! We’ve invited some other churches to join us, and guest speakers will begin the afternoon service at 3:00 pm, accompanied by wonderful praise and worship, lasting into the evening hours.
Come join us for a "Holy Spirit" filled autumn day, full of God's Holy Word (food for the soul) and food for the tummy, enjoying some good old home style BBQ with all the trimmings.
