The United Pentecostal Church of DeKalb will host a weekend celebration in observance of its 20th anniversary at 7:30 p.m. March 8, 6 p.m. March 9, and 10 a.m. March 10.
Guest speakers include the Rev. Daniel McDonald of Vandalia, the Rev. Jason Cox of Steger, and the Rev. David Reid of Louisville, Ky. There also will be special music included at each service, and a slide show presentation of events throughout the years on Saturday evening and Sunday morning.
The Rev. Greg and Julie Davis held their first service on Jan. 17, 1993, at the River Heights Golf Course Clubhouse, with four people in attendance. As the congregation began to grow, they moved into the basement of the Planwealth Royal Alliance building in the spring of 1993.
Services were held in the Planwealth building until 1998, when the congregation was able to move into a new facility at 1120 S. Seventh St., DeKalb, where weekly services are held. God has blessed the congregation in many areas, and an expectation of many more years of growth and ministering to the DeKalb community are on the horizon.
Those in need of transportation to any of the services can call 815-762-8552.
