Jones Valley Community COGIC celebrates 100 years of service

Posted: Updated:

 

TYLER (KYTX) - It was a centennial celebration for members of the Jones Valley Community Church of God in Christ.

The church was founded in 1913 by several east Texas families.

The first services were held in the old Tyler "Colored School".

Over the years they moved to a new facility and now for nearly 30 years they've called the church on County Road 485 home.

"I just want to see this church to continue to grow and just be a light in this community," said church pastor Melton Timmons.

The church said they intend to keep the community in mind since the community has played such a large role in it's continued history and success.
