Church of Nazarene Celebrates anniversary

On Sunday, Oct. 5, Maryville First Church of the Nazarene in Maryville, will join with 18,000 other Nazarene churches in 151 world areas to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Church of the Nazarene.

Preparations for the day began in 2004 with the writing and translation of materials sent to every Nazarene chruch across the globe. The plan is that all 1.6 million members of the church will hear the same sermon, celebrate with the same music, and participate in the same reading in 24 time zones on the same day.

“Our congregation is excited to celebrate this anniversary with all of our Nazarene family around the world,” said Rev. Ray Couey, pastor of Maryville First Church of the Nazarene. “At the same time, we want to emphasize that the family never stops growing, and there is plenty of room for all. In our society today, it seems that relationships often don’t last very long. We invite our community to join us on October 4 and 5 to see relationships that have remained strong for 100 years.”

The local anniversary celebration will begin on Saturday, Oct. 4. It will be a celebration of our local congregation which was formed in 1939 Jefferson Ave. This is the site of Maryville Nazarene church in it’s beginning years. We will have music and stories telling of the early days. Our denominational celebration will be on Sunday morning, Oct. 5. It will be in the current location of the church, 1610 E. Broadway. Our service will start at 10 a.m. We would like to invite all members, former members and friends to join us for this day of celebration.

The church of the Nazarene has its roots in Methodism, drawn from the teachings of English evangelist John Wesley (1703 - 1791). The denomination was established in October 1908 in Pilot Point, Texas, the culmination of mergers of several like-minded groups. The mission of the Church of the Nazarene is to make Christlike disciples in the nations.

The congregation has been headquarteredin Kansas City, Missouri, since 1912. Maryville First Church of the Nazarene was established in 1939 and moved to it’s present location, 1610 E. Broadway, in 1951
