The Rev. David Eroh, Lehighton Bible Church in Jamestown, remembers preaching one of his first sermons four decades ago to three ladies in the congregation.
The Jamestown church has grown from that handful of members to 198 members today.
Rev. Eroh, along with the Bible Church congregation, will celebrate their 40th anniversary on Sunday, Oct. 2. A luncheon following the 10 a.m. service is being held to celebrate the occasion.
Eroh held his first church service on Sunday, Oct. 4, 1970, in a building which was originally a school.
