Local churches celebrate Race Relations Sunday
PECOS, February 16, 2001 - Several area churches celebrated the second
Sunday of the month, a date set aside by the Ethics and Religious Liberty

day together. Close to one 150 persons united at Iglesia Bautista Nueva

Keeper." After the service, the attendees fellowshipped in a potluck luncheon.
