— Other planned anniversary events include a sermon about the lights in April (the church’s windows are unique as they are painted, not stained), a Mother’s Day presentation about the Female Charitable Society May 12 and a concert on the lawn July 10, which marks the month of the church’s 200th anniversary. In addition, a birthday worship service will be held Sept. 29 at the church followed by an historical marker dedication and a dinner reception at the Red Mill Inn. For the full listing of events, visit presbville.com.

The celebration will come full circle next March when the committee plans to return the time capsule with mementos from this year’s projects and celebrations.
