Possibly Boring Church Service Planned in Auburn

The East Auburn Baptist Church celebrates its 200th anniversary on Saturday, and one of these Sundays Rev. Roger Cousineau is going to mark the occasion by turning off his microphone and unplugging the organ.
For one Sunday, sometime this bicentennial year, the minister plans to go rustic, recreating a service that might have been held in the early 19th century. He plans to use the text of an original sermon once preached here, at the first Baptist church in the city.

"I might just read it," Cousineau said. "It might even be boring." [Link]
The church was known as the Baptist Church of Christ of Minot until 1842 when the town of Auburn was created.
