A View from the Balcony of the Matthews Memorial Baptist Church Sanctuary, circa 1960s
This image from a photo album kept by Pastor R.V. Coger and First Lady Ophelia Coger, depicts an image of church life from the 1960s. The photograph was taken from the rear of the space that is now Matthews Memorial Baptist Church's Russell Hall, the site of the church's history exhibition space. The image illustrates the church's need for more sanctuary space as both the overflow balcony and the aisle space are filled with worshipers. (Original photographer unknown.)
