A 60th anniversary celebration for Wenatchee Valley Baptist Church will be held Aug. 9 from 2 to 4 p.m. The celebration will be in the Fireside Room, 650 Crawford Ave., Wenatchee.
History was started on January 19, 1954, when five families met to discuss the possibility of beginning a Southern Baptist Church work in Wenatchee. They made contact with Quincy Baptist Church, which later became the sponsoring body. They met in a home on Furney Street, one of the homes of those families.
