First Southern Baptist Church of Mattoon celebrated 75 years in a special service Sept. 10. Pastor John Coin preached and also provided smoked meats for the anniversary dinner. IBSA Executive Director Nate Adams was on hand to present a plaque honoring the milestone. Also present were John and Julie Calio who served the church for 18 years, until his retirement as pastor last year. Calio joined the staff of IBSA as a zone consultant for zone 3. Coin had been serving as part-time youth minister before succeeding Calio. As part of a series called “Back to Basics,” Coin preached a message called “Back to the Future” from Acts.
