Bro. Michael A. Brown, minister of Lewisburg's Second Avenue Church of Christ will present excerpts from his newly published book, Faithful Legacy, which is a history of Second Avenue Church of Christ.
To it credit, the Second Avenue congregation has been home to many of Marshall County's most influential community leaders. Included in the "faithful legacy", which will be discussed, are the Dysarts, the Mayberrys, the Ewings, the Allens, the Sowells, the Cauldwells, the Loves, the Robinsons, the Johnsons, the Hightowers, the Burns, the Davises, and the Yeargins.
The story is certainly not limited to this leadership, but several members of these families are chronicled in this loving, though candid, picture of the church's growth since its inception in 1913.
Bro. Brown, who came to Second Avenue Church of Christ in 1994, is a native of Trenton, NJ, and served several churches in the Northeast before moving to Huntsville, Ala., where he resides with his family and works during the week as a principal engineer with NASA for Morgan Research Corporation.
He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from David Lipscomb University, a Master of Divinity degree from David Lipscomb University, and is a candidate for the Doctor of Ministry degree from Harding College. He and his wife Linda are the parents of three children.
The presentation at the historical society will be part of the church's Strengthening the Family Seminar, which runs May 6-9. Nightly sessions Monday through Wednesday are scheduled from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the church located at 720 Second Avenue North.
The public is encouraged to support the Marshall County Historical Society and the Second Avenue congregation by attending these free and open meetings.
