Hurst United Methodist Church at 829 Dallas Road will celebrate its 131st anniversary on Sunday, Aug. 18. The guest speaker at 11 a.m. will be Elder C. Bryant Foster of The Glory House. The guest speaker for the 3 p.m. service will be Dr. Rozario Slack of the Temple of Faith Deliverance Church of God in Christ.

Hurst United Methodist Church was founded in 1882 by pioneer families of Hill City, now known as North Chattanooga. After undergoing much growth and change, Hurst moved from its original location near Bell Avenue to the hill overlooking Lawn Street Place, to its current location on Dallas Road. “Hurst has a long, rich history of nurturing its members, the community and beyond,” says Rev. Edward Ellis, III, pastor of Hurst. “Through many location and leadership changes, Hurst remains true to its mission of bringing souls to Christ.”
