Send a link to a friend

- Sunday, April 11th, 2010 was a special day in the history of Park Meadows Baptist Church, in Lincoln Illinois.
The congregation celebrated the 35th anniversary of their Pastor being at Park Meadows and honored him and his lovely wife, Rae Jean. Pastor S.M. Davis and Rae Jean came to Lincoln in 1975 and have faithfully served God and their church ever since. (Park Meadows was formerly called State Street Baptist Church, but its name was changed to Park Meadows Baptist Church when it moved to its current location on Memorial Park Road.)

Over the years Pastor Davis has been at Park Meadows, he has lead the church in various ministries , such as Red, White, and Blue Sunday honoring our public service workers, Christmas caroling to the community, Reformers Unanimous (ministering to people with any type of addiction), Youth Conference, Vacation Bible School, Radio Broadcasts, and ministries to all age groups.

The various Sunday school classes made cards and posters thanking the Davises for their 35 years of faithfulness. The teen Sunday school classes gave Pastor & Mrs. Davis coupons for service at their home.

During the morning service various ministries presented gifts to Pastor Davis & Mrs. Davis. The Junior church children each gave Pastor and Rae Jean a special gift. The teen department gave him a beautifully framed picture of a pastorís tools, signed by each teenager. The church took an offering and gave them a beautiful living room furniture suite.

After the evening service the teen girls served a dessert reception prepared by church members.

Thank you, Pastor and Mrs. Davis, for faithfully following Godís will, and serving our church and community members for 35 years. We love you!
