August 18, 2011
Waco Baptist Church, Russellville, in Franklin Baptist Association celebrated its 100th anniversary July 17 with the help of some of its former leaders. One of those was former Pastor Larry Dover, who now serves as director of missions for Franklin Association. Dover delivered a special message to the approximately 100 attendees. The anniversary celebration also included a detailed reading of the church’s history and the recognition of all former deacons and pastors.
An Alabama Baptist Historical Commission representative was on hand to present a plaque, and two additional plaques of recognition from other groups were presented.
Following lunch was a two-hour musical presentation with several singers and soloists, noted Elbert Berryman, member of Waco Baptist since 1948 and chairman of the church’s 100th year anniversary.
“We had good attendance and good fellowship,” he said.
Pastor Billy George agreed. “Everything went really well. We had a good turnout that day.”
