158th Homecoming

Antioch Baptist Church will celebrate their 158th Homecoming on October 11. This day is set aside each year to reflect on God's goodness through the years and to look with anticipation to His continued blessings and opportunities. It is a time for warm fellowship with church family and friends. A time for friends and family to rekindle fond memories and an opportunity to get acquainted and connected with new friends and families in the church.

A special day is planned with special guests and activities. At 9:45 AM the musical group Delivered will be ministering in music. Delivered is a group of young people who are fulfilling their calling of ministering through Southern Gospel music. Their youthfulness, sincerity, and commitment to their calling are an encouragement to people of all ages. Singing new, uplifting songs as well as bringing back songs of old is appealing to all audiences. Delivered is no stranger to Antioch and has blessed the church several times through their music, testimony and support.

Dr. Fritz Fountain will be the special speaker in the 11:00 AM service. Dr. Fountain serves as the Director of Missions in the Suwannee Baptist Association where he provides leadership and partnership to the Southern Baptist churches in our area. Dr. Fountain is an excellent example of a servant leader who actively leads and ministers along side of our churches in many areas including an association-wide mission trip each summer. You will enjoy hearing the biblical message Dr. Fountain will bring.

Following the morning service there will be a meal in the fellowship hall. The food and fellowship is sweet and abundant at Homecoming and is always a blessing. Church family is encouraged to cook plenty to share with our guests.
