Kathwood Celebrates 50th Anniversary

The church’s anniversary was both a remembrance of the past and a celebration of the future. Perhaps the most important part was the participation of everyone who worked to make the celebration possible, and all those who came and participated. It was the church working together, the tie that binds our hearts. As the old hymn says, “What a fellowship, what a joy divine.” Thank you, Kathwood, and thank the Lord, for bringing us to where we are today.
