Nichols to serve
Oak Street Community Presbyterian Church, located at the corner of Miles Avenue and Oak Street in Union City, is announcing that the Rev. Larry Nichols of Union City will be serving as the congregation’s interim pastor.
Nichols is a native of Union City and is married to Barbara (Hays) Nichols, also a resident of Union City since 1964. He was pastor of Mount Olive Baptist Church in the Crystal Community for 21 years and is well known in the community. Ordained to preach from First Baptist Church of Union City, he delivers a very Christ-led dynamic message each and every Sunday, a spokesman said.
Oak Street Community Presbyterian Church is an excited, imperfect and relaxed congregation of local residents from various religious backgrounds. Worship services are held each Sunday morning at 10:30, beginning with lively music led by Calvin Cary and Linda Hudson, along with Kenny Stowell on lead guitar, Gary Bradley on bass guitar and Roy Griffith on keyboard.
The congregation invites all of Rev. Nichols’ friends and acquaintances to visit whenever possible and reminds others that they are always ready to welcome everyone and hope to be considered when anyone is looking for a church home.
“We have an excited, come-as-you-are atmosphere,” a spokesman said.
