The Historic CMBC Indy is proud to announce their 100th Anniversary Celebration Week schedule. The events for the week include a 100-voice choir concert, days of community service at the Hope Center and Days Spring Center, a three-day revival, formal fund-raising banquet and mortgage burning ceremony.
The guest pastors include Pastor Maurice Watson from the Metropolitan Baptist Church in Washington, DC; Bishop E. Anne Henning Byfield of the 16th District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church; and Reverend Doctor E. Dewey Smith from the House of Hope in Atlanta and Macon, Georgia. The concert begins at 4 p.m. on Sunday, August 11th. The revival begins at 7 p.m. nightly on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Both the 100 voice reunion choir concert and the anniversary revival services will be held in the main sanctuary at 1001 Eugene Street in Indianapolis.
The culmination of the week’s celebration will be the fusion of the church’s rich history with their vision to embrace and empower the future. The “Faith 4 The Future” Banquet will be held at the Indianapolis Marriott East, 7202 East 21st Street at 6:30 on Saturday, August 17th. Bishop Paul S. Morton, the Senior Pastor of Changing A Generation Full Gospel Baptist Church of Atlanta, Georgia, will be the keynote speaker. Tickets may be purchased by calling the church office at 317-925-4132.
In keeping with CMBC Indy’s commitment to both celebrate our community while we also address many of the daunting challenges we face, CMBC Indy will use the proceeds from the banquet to continue funding programs and resources to improve the quality of life for Indianapolis Near Northside residents.
CMBC Indy was founded as 17th Street Memorial Baptist Church in 1919. The congregation has prospered and continues to offer faith and hope to the entire Indianapolis Community. The public is invited to attend all of the events.
