Mt. Hebron Baptist Church - 100 Years Of Faith

By Elva Sutphin © 1986Mt. Hebron Baptist Church.Mt. Hebron Baptist Church.

Issue: October, 1986

Located on a small winding back road in Willis, Virginia, Mt. Hebron Baptist Church has weathered the storms of time for 100 years.

The community has seen many changes. The population has swelled and dwindled, but the church is still administrating to the community's spiritual needs.

Because 1986 is their centennial year, the church members have printed a book on the history of the church. Everyone dug into their photo albums and came up with many wonderful old photographs passed down to them. The history of the church is documented in photos of baptizings, homecomings, and turn of the century church members and preachers.

If anyone would like to have a copy of the book, you may write to Mrs. Elva Sutphin, Route 3, Box 59, Willis, Virginia 24380. The cost of the book is $10.00. Oh yes, if any of you are in the area, you are invited to stop in and attend service.
