For 50 years, members of Bayou Sara Baptist Church, Saraland, have been “walking in faith.” So it only seemed fitting for “Walking in Faith” to be the message Pastor Dennis Dunn brought to the more than 300 people gathered at the Mobile Baptist Association church to celebrate its 50th anniversary Oct. 3.
With testimonies, special recognition of charter members and a video showing the faces of the church over the years, “it was a great day,” Dunn said.
Pat Smith, a member of Bayou Sara Baptist for about 40 years, served on the anniversary committee and helped plan the day.
“It was such a pleasant atmosphere,” Smith said. “Everybody had a great time.”
As members and former members celebrated this milestone, they also looked ahead to what the Lord has planned next.
“(My hope is) that we would catch a vision of what the Lord would want to do in our midst in our church and (that we would) do it,” Dunn said.
