Chattanooga Celebrates 175th Anniversary With  
Historic St. Elmo Missionary Baptist Church Special Tribute  
at Celebrate Chattanooga.com



 
Chattanooga, Tennessee

 

Friday, November 14, 2014   

 

 

Celebrate Chattanooga, "Chattanooga's Celebration Station" hosted by Tekelia Kelly, will present its Special Tribute program on Saturday Nov. 15, 2014.  Please note this is an online event that will take place on the Celebrate Chattanooga website at www.celebratechattanooga.com.  The Special Tribute page will change over to the actual show starting at 11:00 am and remain online for site visitors. 

 

The event is in celebration of Chattanooga's 175th Anniversary and will be a broadcast of actual music, singing, inspirations, media presentations by St. Elmo. Featured on the program are Pastor Billy Church, Minister of Music Lyndon Carriger, Choir Director Dorothea Johnson, The Historic St. Elmo Missionary Baptist Church Choir, and special guest, gospel jazz guitarist Roland Gresham. Tekelia Kelly, Education Technology Consultant and Sisters In Business.Net business owner will emcee the event.  

 

The event culminates a week-long schedule of activities at Celebrate Chattanooga, which also served as one of many CHA175.org's community-sourcing events held throughout the city Nov. 1-15.

Founded in 1861, St. Elmo Missionary Baptist was established by loving and faithful people who built on and practiced God's Word--the Bible, love, missions, and service. The church was originally located and served in the St. Elmo community, where its members also resided. The church relocated less than a mile away to its second location on 37th Street. From there the church built its current structure, which is across the street on West Avenue. The church has served St. Elmo, Alton Park, and the Chattanooga community at-large through its various outreach ministries.

 

Now in its 153rd year, the body rejoices to see another year, and having the opportunity to continue serving Chattanooga. In observance of the church's anniversary, Pastor Billy Church shared with his congregation: "As St. Elmo Missionary Baptist Church family approaches this Holy Celebration, we should remember the words of the Apostle Paul to the Church of Corinth. He said "but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord" 1 Corinthians 15:57-58.
