Powers Church Services
Sunday, July 24, 2022
The first service of the season at the historic Powers Church will be held Sunday, June 26 at 7:00 P.M.
Mark and Stephen Kays will open the season at the church for an evening of gospel songs and guitar music. Blake Stevenson, Family Ministry Director of the Angola United Methodist Church, will give the devotions for the service. The Old York Church will provide ice cream after the service.
The Powers Church is a local historic site that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1876 and has been restored to its original condition by a committee of interested people. The church features the original oak floors and wainscoting, wood stoves, pump organ, wallpaper and furniture. Kerosene lamps will provide the lighting for the service in keeping with the 1876 atmosphere.
Two more services will be held at the church this summer.
On July 24, The Pokagon Pitchpipers Barbershop Chorus will provide the music. Jeremy Jones, pastor of the Columbia, Ohio Church of Christ, will give the devotions.
On August 28, the Little River Chorus of the Sweet Adelines will provide the music and Mike Hesterman, pastor of the Metz Christian Church, will give the devotions.
The final service of the year will be a Christmas service on November 27 at 3:00 pm. This will include a reading of the Christmas story and singing Christmas carols.
The church is located nine miles east of Angola, just north of US 20 on Old Road 1. A free will offering will be taken to enable further restoration of the church. The public is invited to attend.
