The 2013 Pennytown Homecoming will be held this coming Sunday, August 4th. All are welcome for food, worship, and fellowship.
11:00 am — Prayer Service at Pennytown Freewill Baptist Church (located six miles northeast of Interstate 70/ Route 65 junction — take 165th road east off of Route 65 for one mile and turn south on Kittyhawk Avenue. Pennytown Church is 3/4 miles south of turn on east side of road.)
12:00 pm — Lunch and Fellowship at Knights of Columbus Hall (1267 S. English in Marshall) with special guest: cultural historian and storyteller, Br. John Anderson.
Thanks to all who came out to share food and fellowship during Pennytown Homecoming 2012. Over 75 people were present at both the morning service at the Church and at lunch at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Marshall. Due to generous donations, Friends of Pennytown raised monies needed to pay for ongoing improvements to the Freewill Baptist Church as well as annual insurance and utility costs. We thank all of you for your support and look forward to seeing you again next year.
Until then, enjoy this clip of Charles Finley leading gatherers in song on August 5th. More images and video to come . . .
Because of extremely hot temperatures expected on Sunday August 5th, the schedule for Pennytown Homecoming has been modified. Changes are as follows:
10:00 am — Prayer Service at Pennytown Freewill Baptist Church
12:00 pm — Lunch and fellowship at Knights of Columbus Hall (1267 S English St, Marshall, MO)
Please spread the word and we hope to see you at both locations.
This year’s Homecoming will be held at Pennytown Freewill Baptist Church on Sunday, August 5th. All are welcome to join us for food, worship, and fellowship beginning at 10:00 AM. Worship will be at 11:00 and a ham and fried chicken lunch will be served at noon ($5.00 donation).
The Friends of Pennytown Church would like to thank all who attended the 2011 Homecoming celebration for their continued support. This year we raised over $800 from donations, offerings, and the raffle.
Congratulations to the raffle winners:

Thanks also to James Madison and the Buffalo Soldier Re-enactors, as well as all others who contributed in any way to another successful Homecoming.
We hope many of you will be able to join us this Sunday at Pennytown Freewill Baptist Church at 11:30 AM for worship, fellowship, and lunch. Note that Homecoming will begin earlier this year so we can avoid the heat as much as possible. All are welcome!
The 2011 Homecoming gathering will be held on Sunday, August 7th at the Pennytown Historic Site. As always, there will be a raffle that afternoon with prizes being awarded (you need not be present to win). Tickets will be available the day of Homecoming and will also be sold in advance by Friends of Pennytown members. The money received from the raffle will be used to support the Pennytown Historic Site.
