Remember the Past, Celebrate the Future: Trinity Baptist Church to celebrate 65th Anniversary


Trinity Baptist Church was formally organized March 2, 1953. Groundbreaking ceremonies for the new church building were held on July 13. Sixty-five years later, the church will hold its 65th Anniversary and Homecoming Celebration Sunday, Feb. 19 from 9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Wayne Briges and Bob Adams, both former music ministers at the church, will be the special guests for the celebration. A luncheon and concert will follow an anniversary service. Historical memorabilia will be on display and the church’s history room will be open for guests to peruse the scrapbooks going back to 1953. This event is open to the public.

It’s important for the church to hold these celebrations so the pastor can learn its history. Current Pastor Joshua Currie has been with Trinity Baptist for five years now and has attended these homecoming celebrations in the past, which also serve as a reunion for those that consider Trinity Baptist as their home church.

It’s been Craig Moran’s home church for over 30 years now. He joined the church in 1986 and he and his wife Camille were married there in June 1987 when Caroll Marr was the pastor.

Moran said he likes Trinity Baptist because it’s the right size church, complimentary to the size of Natchitoches. Sometimes when churches are too big, members can feel like just another number amongst the congregation. When they’re too small, if one person misses a service it can feel empty. But at Trinity Baptist everybody knows everybody.
