Bagley Swamp Wesleyan Church celebrated 100 years of ministry on Sunday, September 7, at its two morning worship services.

Located in Hertford, N.C., the church was constructed on donated swampland. Rev. James and Amy Spaugh lead the North Carolina East District church, located in a town of 3,000 residents.

Bagley Swamp lives out its mission of “Connecting people with God and each other, and serving both.” The church is very active in its community, serving year-round in capacities that give opportunities to tell others about Jesus.

Recently, the church dedicated a week to serving the community. They called it “Love PQ Week,” or a stay-at-home missions trip to Perquimans County. Teams worked on 22 different projects that involved over 70 volunteers who served more than 1,140 hours. A truck pull that occurred during the week raised right $3,000 for Verity, a charity supported by Bagley Swamp.
