Bowling Green church marks 200 years

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A church in Bowling Green is celebrating its 200th anniversary.

A local TV station reported the congregation of Mount Olivet Cumberland Presbyterian Church gathered Sunday, some wearing period costumes, to celebrate the founding of their church in 1813. The current sanctuary was erected in 1845.

The church sprang from camp meetings in the region and the worship service was a re-enactment of one of those outdoors services.
