Butler Chapel celebrates tenth anniversary of rebuilding.

Ten years have passed since hundreds of Church of the Brethren volunteers helped to build a new Butler Chapel AME Church in Orangeburg, S.C. The original church was burned by arson.

Local church leaders there are now planning a major 10th Anniversary celebration to be held Jan. 11-13, 2008, and the Brethren are invited, reports the "Bridge" newsletter of the Brethren Disaster Ministries.

A variety of events are being planned for the anniversary including a banquet, music, fellowship, worship, and time to reconnect with friends and volunteers. All who love to sing will be offered an opportunity to experience typical AME Church music. The congregation will reserve housing and arrange for meals.

"This cross-cultural event will be a great way to begin our 300th Anniversary year," said the "Bridges" announcement. "Mark your calendars now."
