The year of 20113 we will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Christ Memorial Baptist Church. The entire year we had different functions to celebrate.
This is the finished foyer! Didn't they do a great job that we can be proud to "show everyone"?

This steeple has been donated to Habitat, who will refurbish it and allow a church to use it again for many years.
Finished Sidewalk! Big help to those who could use a little assistance.

CMBC Receives a Historic Bell
Maxine Griffin was the first member of CMBC to ring the historic bell that has been donated to our church. The bell, donated by Joe & Theresa Nicola of Wyoming, originally hung in the old
schoolhouse in Townsend, DE. Joe picked it up at an auction and was offering it for sale at a yard sale. Pastor Jeff met him there and discussed purchasing the bell, but the Nicolas felt that it would be best used at the church and they wanted the church to have it through a donation. The Properties & Grounds Minsintry is in the process of deciding how to restore the bell and hang it properly. It will be used to call people to church, to celebrate weddings, to mark the passing of loved ones and to ring our significant community events. The Nicolas are delightful people and also the only beekeepers in the area. Make it a point to meet them and try some of their honey!
