New Congregations

A new congregation began meeting in Fayetteville, Tennessee, the last part of July. Previously a group had met in homes, but later started driving to Huntsville, Alabama, for worship. The new group will presently meet in the National Guard Armory, but hopes to soon construct a meeting house of their own, on a lot that is already possessed by this group.

Their building lot is located near what is known as "The Fork" South of Fayetteville and the congregation will be known as the South Fayetteville church of Christ.

This new congregation will stand for "The Old Paths," believing in the all-sufficiency of the Scriptures and the all-sufficiency of the church to do her work without the institutions, boards, societies, etc., which men invent.

Wayne Moore will preach regularly for this congregation.
