Mineola church celebrates 137 years

Celebrating 137 years, a Mineola church held a special ceremony this afternoon for reaching such a significant milestone.  St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church is the oldest and only baptist church in Mineola.  Hopewell Valley Baptist Church in Lindale gave a special message this afternoon to the St. Paul congregation, congratulating them on all their success.  

"We have the benefit of having a lot of faithful members that have given us support and carried on the leadership that has been here prior to me, "said St. Paul Pastor Demethruis Boyd.  "It's just the wonderful faithness of our members trusting God and staying with what he puts forth and keeping with the vision, and as a result we've been here 137 wonderful years."  St. Paul would also like to thank its community for supporting them throughout the years.
