Baptist church to celebrate 95th anniversary

KANKAKEE — Second Baptist Church will celebrate its 95th church anniversary this Saturday and Sunday, saying “Let’s celebrate God’s goodness for 95 years!” The celebration’s theme will be taken from Psalms 31:19 — “Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the son of men!”

On Saturday, from 1 to 6 p.m., the church presents Taste of Second Baptist Church with free barbecue and lots of desserts. Then on Sunday, starting at 10:30 a.m., there will be an outdoor worship service. You’re asked to bring a chair and umbrella, if desired.

Hand-sanitizing stations will be available and face masks will be required.

Those attending will be asked to adhere to social distancing guidelines.

The church is located at 717 N. Wildwood Ave. and led by Pastor Tyler J. Prude.
