Pyerian Baptist Church Burns Note Nearly Nine Years Early

January 9th, 2011 will be remembered as a special day in the history of Pyerian Baptist Church of Floyd Dale community.
The church had a special service and celebration to mark the pay-off of the mortgage on its $1.3 million sanctuary and classroom complex.
The mortgage was paid off nine years early through diligent trust in God’s provision and the faithfulness of the congregation.
The service included two full messages and special music.
The first sermon was delivered by Rev. Ron Taylor, Director of Missions for the Pee Dee Baptist Association.
He pointed to the growing need to reach the people of Dillon County especially those in multi-housing areas.
Former pastor Daryl Tanner came back to Pyerian to deliver the second message.
He told of the original vision for the new sanctuary and how the church remained constant in its support of missions and needs around the world, including the purchase of a new truck for missions couple, Chris and Donna Williams, in Honduras and generous donations to help with Hurricane Katrina relief.
The note was burned by church treasurer Neil Herring, now in his fifty-first year of service, along with all the church deacons and those who served on any of the committees for the planning and construction of the church.  A full meal was served in the fellowship hall immediately following the  service.
