Turkey Branch United Methodist Church will celebrate its 225th anniversary on Sunday.  The celebration begins with a worship service at 11 a.m. conducted by Bishop James R. King Jr. This will be followed by a basket lunch on the grounds with homemade lemonade.  Please bring your lawn chairs.
The afternoon will offer the sharing of the church history and a song service at 2:30 p.m. featuring local vocalists and special music.  Rev. Madison Morgan and the congregation invite you to come and share their celebration northwest of Springfield just off Old Dixie Highway.
