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!

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.

Thanks to everyone who joined us out at Pennytown on August 2nd. It was another wonderful homecoming with good food and fellowship. Thanks also to our special guest and speaker Mark Miles, and to all those who contributed time, labor, and money.
We would not be able to maintain the church and grounds without your generosity. We look forward to seeing you all again next year.
Homecoming 2008 has come and gone. Our special guest was Warren Read, author of The Lyncher in Me: A Search for Redemption in the Face of History. Below are some pictures from that gathering. The 2009 annual Homecoming will be on Sunday, August 2nd. Our keynote speaker will be Mark Miles, Deputy State Historical Preservation Officer for the State of Missouri with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
