Bro. Mark Jones this past Sunday, Sept. 13, led his last worship service at First Baptist Church in Batesville.

He is retiring after serving at FBC for 13 years as part of his 40-plus years of music ministry. His family was on hand last Saturday, Sept. 12, when the church had a “parade of well wishers” drive through the church portico area to say goodbye to their beloved music minister.

During the worship service on Sunday, Bro. Mark and Gale were presented a plaque and a  book of memories by Senior Pastor Dr. Tommy Snyder.
