Tales of Two Hundred Years
After finding a copy of “A RESEARCH PAPER” presented to Mr. Donald A. Parvin at 
Cedarville College by Robin Joye Strope, April 27, 1981, the secretary of South
Apalachin Baptist Church alerted the congregation at the next quarterly business meeting 
that we will be celebrating our 200th anniversary in 2016. It was decided to 
start working on a celebration to commemorate our Bicentennial.

In July of 2012 "Tales of Two Hundred Years" was started as a weekly section in the
bulletin to highlight the many stories of our church heritage.
