“Feeding the Flock’

“Feeding the Flock’

Members of Oak Grove Baptist Church will celebrate their 100th year as a church Sept. 30 in the Phoenix community of Yazoo County. To mark the anniversary, the ladies of the church published a commemorative cookbook they call “Feeding the Flock.”
     The name Phoenix is a reminder of the destruction the area suffered as Union troops marched through on their way to Vicksburg. In 1865, as residents began rebuilding homes burned by the soldiers, they named their community after the mythological bird that rises reborn from its firey nest.
    In 1912, 38 founding members completed the construction of Oak Grove Baptist Church. The original building was demolished 40 years later to make way for a larger, more modern building to accommodate a growing membership.
    “Feeding the Flock” offers more than 275 pages of recipes enjoyed by generations of Oak Grove members. Proceeds from sales help support local and international missions.
    To order, send $20 plus $5 S&H to Oak Grove Baptist Church, c/o Linda Martin, 719 Hebron Church Road, Bentonia, MS 39040. For information call 662-755-2331.
