November 4, 2010
Pine Flat Baptist Church, Suttle, boasted nearly three times its normal attendance of 40 Oct. 17 as it celebrated homecoming and its 175th anniversary. Current and former members gathered to recognize the Cahaba Baptist Association church’s milestone.
“It’s always good to see former members and hear their stories about how it used to be,” Pastor Michael Brooks said, adding many of them “contributed greatly to the Lord’s work through our church.”
Rick Lance, executive director of the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions, was the featured speaker. Bill Wallace, director of missions for Cahaba Association, also addressed the congregation.
Lonette Berg, executive director of the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission, was on hand to present a framed proclamation recognizing the church’s years of service.
Lunch followed the service.
Looking to Pine Flat Baptist’s future, Brooks said, “[I hope] we continue to try to be salt and light in our community and to minister to the people of Perry County.”
