“I sincerely appreciate the faithfulness of our members,” said Glen Edmonds, pastor of Dolomite Baptist Church. “They are few in number, but you can count on them to be there for worship.”
But Dolomite Baptist’s numbers saw a dramatic rise from a Sunday average of 15 to more than 50 as former members flocked to the Bessemer Baptist Association church to celebrate its 125th anniversary Oct. 17.
Dan Ireland, director emeritus of Alabama Citizens Action Program and former pastor of Dolomite Baptist, preached the message. A representative from the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission presented a plaque commemorating the occasion. John Host, a member for more than 50 years, accepted the plaque on behalf of the church.
Edmonds said “with the Lord’s help” he hopes Dolomite Baptist will grow and reach its community in the future.
