Pioneering Pulpits Exhibit Opens

Sanctuary. Faith. Community. These words – among others – are synonymous with the concept of a church. The history of the Ocoee Region churches follows the pattern generally found in this area of the South. As new lands were opened for settlement, pioneers loaded their families and chattel in wagons and set out with bright hopes for the future.

Pioneering Pulpits opens for our member-only opening reception Thursday, December 4 at 6:00 PM.

The exhibit opens to the public on Friday, December 5.

He and Maria should have been worn out, but if they were, they really showed very little sign of it. His energy level, for a guy that couldn’t have gotten more ... (click for more)
