Mr. & Mrs. Mickey Joyce - October 4, 2008




The First Baptist Church, 123 S. Beaver Street, Flagstaff, Arizona
Built in 1939 and Listed In The National Register 12/31/1991
Designed by Orville Bell in Late Gothic Revival Architectural Style.
The Church has stood for 69 years and is still an active Church.
Our Marriage has stood for 50 years and we are more in love today that ever.

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. " Matthew 19: 5 & 6
