ALEXANDRIA – Horseshoe Drive Baptist Church celebrated its last service Aug. 21 in the recently renewed and updated facilities — in anticipation of re-launching as a revitalized congregation Sept. 18.
“This was our final service as ‘Horseshoe Drive Baptist Church’ and we treated it as a homecoming,” said Robert Daniel, interim pastor and director of missions for Central Louisiana Baptist Association. “We celebrated our legacy, but also rejoiced over the future God is unfolding for us as a re-born family of faith.”
“We worshiped God and took time to recognize His work through so many who have contributed to this ministry since Nov. 16, 1958,” Daniel added.
The service provided a point of closure, he explained, but also set the stage for the reboot of the congregation in the community.
Sept. 18, the campus will be re-launched as Philadelphia Baptist Church, Horseshoe Drive.
