Unity Baptist Church, Atmore, hosted more than 250 attendees for its 25th anniversary celebration Oct. 3.
Former members and visitors gathered in the auditorium for a special music performance led by Sealed Covenant. They also enjoyed a video presentation reflecting on the history of the Escambia Baptist Association church.
“It’s always been known as a welcoming place with freedom to worship, a place where everyone is loved and accepted,” charter member and Music Minister Kenny Shivers said of the church.
A representative from the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission presented the congregation with a plaque honoring its years of service. Director of Missions Pat Andrews was also present for the celebration. Lunch was served following the service.
Former Pastor Gene Pickern brought the message and expressed his hope for Unity Baptist’s future.
“[I hope they] continue to cling to the vision of the gospel, that the congregation will always be willing to pay the price to reach out to the world and the community around them,” he said.
