Ebenezer Baptist Church will recognize a Rocky Mount centenarian this month as part of its centennial celebration.

George Walter Davis Sr., a longtime Rocky Mount resident, will be honored at a service on his birthday, July 27, a release says.

Born in 1913, in Halifax County, Davis has lived in Rocky Mount since he was 18 save from 1954 to 1969, when he lived in New York. Over his life, he has been honored for his service in church and many community activities.

Ebenezer Baptist plans to recognize other Rocky Mount residents who will turn 100 during the 30-month run of the church’s centennial celebration. The recognition will include inviting them to attend special services and gospel singings, sending them cards and sharing other activities.

Centenarians’ names can be shared with the church’s Centenarian Recognition Committee by calling 446-2378.

Ebenezer Baptist Church is at 652 Raleigh Road.
