Then in 1836 a log cabin church was built and the New Providence Baptist Church was started.

Everyone in the community is welcome to attend the 175th year celebration on Saturday, Sept. 17, beginning at 5 p.m. with music, beans and cornbread and fellowship.

Then on Sunday, Sept. 18, starting at 1 p.m. there will be games, live music and pitch-in lunch.
