Church Celebrates 45th Anniversary

Attendees at the 45th Anniversary Celebration of the Pastaskala Seventh Day Baptist Church

It was an exciting day on December 11, 2021 when the Pataskala Seventh Day Baptist Church celebrated 45 years since formally joining to form a church. Five of the original twelve charter members when the church was formed were able to be present at the Anniversary Celebration. It was formerly called the First Seventh Day Baptist Church and met in rented facilities in Columbus and Westerville. The name changed after purchasing the present building at 12161 Broad Street SW in Pataskala, OH in 2004.

Pastor Dale Thorngate, former pastor when the church was formed 45 years ago, was the special guest speaker. There were MANY good memories and pictures shared! Following the worship service, the festivities continued over a Pot-Luck luncheon in the Bond Fellowship Hall, in memory of Helen and Ernest Bond who first moved to Ohio and began meeting in their home.

A video of photos old and new was put together to commemorate the event. You can view them here: LINK TO PATASKALA SDB CHURCH CELEBRATION (about 7 min)
