Trinity Baptist Church of Orange will celebrate their second anniversary on Sunday, Sept. 16.  The Second Anniversary celebration is expected to draw a large number of members and visitors. The church is located in the historic church at 1408 W. Park Ave. at 14th Street, formally the longtime home of the Park Avenue Methodist Church.

Dr. Robert (Bob) Webb will deliver the message during the service.  Dr. Webb is a native of West Texas and a graduate of Howard Payne University, from which he holds the degree, Bachelor of Art, majoring in Practical Theology.  He is also a graduate of the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas from which he holds two degrees, Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry.  He completed his Clinical Pastoral Education Residency with the Baptist Health System in San Antonio.

Dr. Webb is a Board Certified Chaplain and presently serves as the Chaplain of the Baptist Hospital in Beaumont.  He is married to Diane Dungan Webb. They have two grown children who attend Baylor University.  Natalie is doing her grad work at the Truett Theological Seminary and Nate is a sophomore at Baylor.

Dr. Webb stated, “Trinity Baptist Church is a place where you can seek God, hear the Bible preached, and build strong friendships in a no-pressure atmosphere.  When you visit our church family, you are likely to hear a lot of laughter.  That is because we enjoy being together, and we know that we are never more vulnerable to God’s Spirit than when we are laughing.”  Dr. Webb adds, “Our worship is traditional, our teaching is relevant, and our friendships are genuine.  So relax and enjoy…and be sensitive to what God has for your today.”

Special music for the Sept. 16 Service will be provided by the Trinity Baptist Choir under the direction of Dan Cruse. Dan serves as Worship Leader.  He is married to Sarah Wilbur Cruse. They live in Orange and have four grown children and eight grandchildren. Everyone is invited to come and celebrate this anniversary. Sunday School will be at 9:45 a.m. in the Education Building and the Sunday Worship Service will start at 11 a.m.

Immediately following the Worship Service a luncheon in the TBC Fellowship Hall will be provided for all members and guest attending the church services.  Dan Cruse stated, “We welcome all to attend the luncheon.  The luncheon should be a lot of fun and will have a western theme, “TBC Round Up Luncheon.”  The menu will feature brisket, links, cowboy beans, potato salad, homemade desserts, all the fix’ins and great fellowship.”  Reservations for the luncheon can be RSVP to Addie Wallace at 409-886-2445.
