TARBORO — Members of the congregation of Tarboro Church of God will dedicate their new church building, located on West St. James Street, at 5 p.m. Saturday.

The public is invited to celebrate with Pastor and Mrs. Sammy Wood and the congregation in the dedication service, which will be officiated by Dr. O. Wayne Brewer, administrative bishop of Eastern North Carolina Churches of God.
