Rev. Lawrence Brand, pastor of Union Hill Missionary Baptist Church, addresses his congregation during a special service commemorating the church’s 100th anniversary as the church choir listens behind him.

When Union Hill Missionary Baptist Church recently celebrated its 100th-year anniversary, Pageland Mayor Jason Evans observed the milestone meant 5,200 Sunday morning services, 5,200 Wednesday night services, 5,200 Thursday night services.
“That’s 15,600 opportunities for service to this community,” Evans said.
For 100 years that service has been based on faith and family.
The church, established in 1918, is continually evolving and attracting new members.
