GRAHAM, N.C. — The community in Alamance County is celebrating the 250th anniversary of historic Providence Christian Church.
The Providence meeting house was used many years ago for leaders to talk about forming a new country during the American Revolution.
It is a place steeped in history and cherished by the community.
“My goodness, we didn’t know so many things connected with this spot,” said Pastor Darryl Peebles. “We also hope they’ll say, ‘that’s my spot too’ and feel a sense of pride. It’s probably the most diversified historical spot in this area.”
Alamance County’s first court session happened at Providence and it’s also where the library and school system started. It still serves as a church to an active congregation today.
