Over 200 attend 200th anniversary at Zoar

Pictured above are former Zoar Baptist Church ministers and other Baptist ministers with ties to Zoar. From left are Rev. Jerry Haywood (2006-2008), Rev. Edward Harrow Sr. (ordained at Zoar in 1988), Rev. Bill Thompson (1961-1963), Dr. John Upton and Rev. Mark Johnson (1991-2000). Missing from the above photo is Rev. Ray Baker who served from 1953-1957 and played the offertory. Rev. James Ware (1958-1960) also had driven from Florida to be at the event, but then became ill and was unable to attend.
Zoar Baptist Church in Deltaville celebrated its 200th anniversary on Sunday, November 16.   The morning was filled with history lessons, stirring music and a message from Rev. Mark Johnson filled with hope for the future of Zoar. 

Following a sit-down lunch, the congregation reconvened in the sanctuary for more music and a message from Dr. John Upton, executive director of Virginia Baptist Mission Board, formerly of Urbanna Baptist Church.  Dr. Upton presented to Walter A. Harrow Jr. a plaque commemorating Zoar’s history and the role it has played in the history of Virginia Baptists.
