September 29, 2011
Enon Baptist Church, Vinemont, marked a special milestone Aug. 21: its 150th anniversary.
Event organizer Mary Ellen Holmes said the East Cullman Baptist Association church had a significant showing with more than 100 attendees, some of whom had not been to the church in more than 40 years. “We were really … pleased with the number that came,” she said.
Five former pastors spoke for 10 minutes each during the special morning worship service: Frank McKenzie, Lynn Perkins, Ronnie Jetton, Wintford Haynes and Perry Brown.
Other highlights included a special song and a slideshow comprised of photos of church members, pastors and church events spanning the years.
Lonette Berg, executive director of the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission, and Randy Makemson, director of missions for East Cullman Association, both presented plaques to the church.
Following the service, a covered-dish dinner was offered in the fellowship hall, providing a time of further reflection and fellowship.
“We had many who came for it (the celebration) from out of state [and] around the state,” Holmes said, adding that everyone seemed to “really enjoy themselves.”
Daniel Lee is pastor.
