Turning 50 years old is a momentous occasion.
On April 11, Pine Ridge Baptist Church, Bessemer, in Mud Creek Baptist Association celebrated that milestone with a special singing service with the Lost and Found Trio and good eating all around.
“We had a wonderful service. … Since it was our homecoming, we kind of reflected on the years and the things that have taken place, and it was a reminder of the fellowship we’ll have one day with Jesus,” said Interim Pastor Allen Scott.
Pine Ridge Baptist was organized in 1960 as Riverside Baptist Church. After a brief closing in 1974, the church reopened and later was constituted as Pine Ridge Baptist.
In the coming years, Scott said he hopes to see the church continue to grow and reach out to the surrounding communities with the love of Jesus.
“I pray our little church on a hill near the river can continue to be a lighthouse for its community,” Scott said.
