“Our goal is to reach the [lost] and to get them to have a fire to come to church,” said Nina Haisten, secretary for Steep Creek Baptist Church, Hope Hull.
The Montgomery Baptist Association church celebrated 150 years of doing just that June 26 with a message from Pastor Trevor Perry on reasons to give thanks taken from Psalm 138, a certificate presented by Alabama Baptist Historical Commission representative Reid Foster, a plaque presented by Associate Director of Missions Bob Dempsey and a fellowship lunch.
Haisten displayed several pictures from the past and present — one of the original building (before remodeling), one of the church in the 1940s when it reopened after being closed for 20 years and one of the current building. As for the future, the congregation of about 30 has a strong desire to grow by adding more children and developing a Sunday School program.
