History for Lunch to feature local author

From the Museum of the Albemarle 

ELIZABETH CITY – The Museum of the Albemarle will host our monthly History for Lunch Hybrid (both in-person and via Zoom video), on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at 12 p.m.  Local author, educator, and historian Chris Barber will present, The Tie That Binds: Rehoboth Methodist Church and 300 Years of Worship along the South Shore of the Albemarle Sound.

The Tie That Binds: Rehoboth Church and 300 Years of Worship Along the South Shore of the Albemarle Sound investigates the evolution of faith and culture that laid the foundation for Rehoboth Methodist Church. It examines Rehoboth’s years as an active church from 1853 through 1969, then spotlights the many volunteers who have helped to keep the church’s doors open for a few services each year for the last fifty years. An appendix lists names of people found in old church records.

The Museum will offer the History for Lunch in-person and through Zoom. To attend in-person, visitors must RSVP by April 30 due to limited available seats in the auditorium, by calling Lori Meads at 252-331-4054. This lecture will also be online: register in advance through the Museum’s Facebook page or website to receive a link through the Zoom platform to attend the lecture. 

Author Chris Barber will be available immediately after the History for Lunch to sign books following State of North Carolina Executive Orders.  Books may be purchased in the Museum Gift Shop.

The virtual program is supported by Southern Bank.
