Old Hebron Baptist celebrating anniversary

Two hundred years ago, settlers arrived in what is now west Jefferson Davis County. Despite the swamps, forests and lack of roads, these settlers began to carve out a community.

One of the first priorities was a church, so Old Hebron Baptist Church was born. Church members are asking for help as they celebrate this historic milestone.

Old Hebron Baptist is one of the oldest churches in southern Mississippi that has held continuous services.

For two hundred years, this church has sent pastors, doctors, lawyers, teachers and home builders into the world.

Help to complete the church’s history by sharing any mementos or memories you might have.

Please send pictures and/or stories to buffyjean6@icloud.com

The church will be celebrating on October 31.
