Sunny Eve marks 75 years with triple attendancecomment (0)
December 23, 2010
The 75th anniversary celebration at Sunny Eve Baptist Church, Anniston, drew a larger than normal crowd. Approximately 130 people — more than three times the congregation’s normal attendance — gathered Nov. 14 to help mark the milestone.
Two of the Calhoun Baptist Association church’s former pastors, Jerry Willingham and Brian Turner, returned to speak. Sunny Eve Baptist’s current pastor, Bobby Ray Lipscomb, also spoke. All those who have held an office in the church were recognized and given the opportunity to say something to those present.
A representative of the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission gave the church a plaque for its 75 years of faithful service.
The congregation is currently compiling a book of drawings done by church members. The book also will include the history of the church as remembered by its oldest members.
