On Saturday, August 13, members of Midway Presbyterian Church joined with neighbors and friends to celebrate the church's 175th anniversary. Pastor Mary Seeger Weese, Kentucky Historical Society Historical Marker Program Coordinator Becky Riddle, and Midway Mayor Grayson Vandegrift spoke at the marker dedication. Elder Judy Offutt, who researched the information for the marker, and Mayor Vandegrift unveiled the marker. In addition to dedicating the marker, the new fellowship hall addition was dedicated, and Transylvania Presbytery General Presbyter Philip Lotspeich joined Pastor Weese and Elder John Davis in providing remarks during the ceremony in the church's sanctuary. Everyone gathered for bbq in the new fellowship hall and enjoyed the historical display and the slide show prepared by Judy Offutt that included photos from the past few decades. After dinner, everyone moved outside to enjoy live music and the beauty of the Community Garden, one of Midway Presbyterian's most popular missions. Thanks to all who came out to celebrate with us, and to all who worked so hard to make this wonderful day possible!
