POINT PLEASANT — The Harvey Memorial United Methodist Church was honored by the borough council with a proclamation celebrating their 150th anniversary in Point Pleasant Borough on April 22.
Council President Valerie Coulson and Councilwoman Charlene Archer honored members of Harvey Memorial at the Earth Day celebrations at Riverfront Park last Saturday.
During the event, Harvey Memorial gave out marigolds and information about “the church itself and the different missions we do here,” said Triche Sherman, secretary and treasurer of Harvey Memorial. “In Christ’s name, we welcome everyone, share faith together and serve the world.”
The church’s 150th anniversary was actually last year in 2022, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, was unable to receive their proclamation from the borough. Council President Coulson said in her proclamation that Harvey Memorial is “an integral and vital part of the growth, longevity and life of the community.” She also wished the church a hopeful and happy next 150 years within the borough.
Harvey Memorial is located on 1120 Arnold Ave., next to the Dunkin Donuts in Point Pleasant Borough.
