A Binghamton church is marking its 100th year anniversary with special programs to commemorate its history.

The centennial celebration is occurring this weekend at the Binghamton First Assembly of God church at 255 Washington Street.

Stephen Ferraro, who chairs the committee that's been preparing for the event, said members have been looking forward to the opportunity to celebrate the church's 100 years in Binghamton.

Ferraro said one part of the celebration will feature a trolley ride around Binghamton Saturday afternoon. The historical trolley tour will run from noon to 5 p.m. every half-hour.

The trolley will visit the various sites around the city where the church has been since it was formed in 1916.

On Saturday evening, a multimedia presentation highlighting the story of the church's past will feature live music, drama and a choir. It will start at 6:30 p.m.

A centennial celebration service on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. will feature Dr. George Wood, the national president of the Assemblies of God.
