Red Apple Baptist Church, Boaz, celebrated its 75th anniversary Aug. 21 with some of its former pastors.
One former pastor, Steve Eubanks, preached and spoke of the church’s history, and several others were recognized. Randall Stoner, director of missions for Marshall Baptist Association, also spoke during the service, and the church choir provided special music.
A representative from the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission presented a plaque to Red Apple Baptist to commemorate the special occasion.
After the service, the second part of the anniversary celebration began. “We had a dinner on the grounds, followed by a singing by (local gospel group) The Fishermen,” church clerk Marjorie Monroe said.
Former Pastor Tony Holcomb also delivered a song to the crowd.
About 80 people gathered to celebrate during both events.
