"The August Meeting" at the Eunice Church of God, 12515 Liberty RD, has been held longer than anyone can remember.
We think the tradition goes back morethan 100 years. Elder William A. Payne was the pastor for 15 years and the revival wasbeing held long before he became pastor. Upon his death in 1990, his son, Elder JosephB. Payne, became the Pastor.
The Lord gave Elder Joseph Payne the vision to build a new church. With not much money, and only a few members, the work was begun.
The old church was torn down on April 7, 2000, and a new sanctuary was built.
There were problems during in the construction which almost stopped the work. Fortunately, there was Master Builder Gerald Shepherd, an Adair Countian who had returned from building in Indianapolis, IN. The problems occurred just as Shepherd was planning to build his retirement home on Dunnville RD.
But this wonderful man dropped everything to help us. He put his own house on hold to oversee the completion of the church, which is much more beautiful than it was with the original plans.With every year, the August Meeting extends one of Adair County's oldest traditions. Countless Preachers and Evangelists have preached in the August Meeting.The 2010 annual revival is starting on August 17-22, 2010, 2010 at 6:30pmCT each evening.
Pastor and congregation invite everyone to attend these revival services, and any timethe Lord leads you to attend. God Bless and Keep every one of you. Marjorie Payne
