Church Chimes

Antioch Baptist Church

Fourth Sunday in April is a special day to remember those whose final resting place is Zion Hope Cemetery in Cordele, Georgia.

For family members who have moved away from the Pateville community and surrounding areas of Crisp County, the day is a homecoming of sorts to enjoy singing together and eating on the grounds at Antioch Baptist Church (Antioch Road off Highway 33 in Cordele). Singing will begin between 10-10:30 a.m. and continue until lunchtime.

After the covered dish meal (bring a basket of food to share; ice will be provided), singing will begin anew inside the church.

Donations can be made to Zion Hope Cemetery Fund, c/o Donzel Lewis, 182 Thomason Road, Cordele, GA 31015.
