Bethel Baptist Church celebrates loan payoff with note burning

In May, Bethel Baptist Church, Dora, held its annual homecoming service and celebrated burning the note on the $1.8 million loan used to construct the church’s current worship center and 12,000-square-foot children’s facility.

Some of Bethel’s oldest members participated in the extinguishing of the note alongside Pastor John S. Foles (second from right), including Terrill Payne (left), Delane Cochran (second from left) and Lola Hollis (right). 

“A special thanks goes to everyone who sacrificially gave for the glory of God and that made the entire day a huge success,” said Foles. (TAB)
