Every Sunday morning the historic wooden panels of the Log Providence Missionary Baptist Church reverberate with exclamations of praise and thanksgiving.

Nestled in the Three Creeks Conservation Area in southwest Boone County, Log Providence is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Rev. David Ballenger’s installment at the church on March 18 — which has congregants reflecting on the deep-seated sense of community fostered by the congregation’s founders.
