Adger’s Mud Creek celebrates 175th anniversary comment (0)

June 7, 2012

By Maggie Walsh

Mud Creek Baptist Church, Adger, celebrated its 175th anniversary May 12. This was also Decoration Day, a day when people are invited to visit the church cemetery and put flowers on their loved ones’ graves.

Event organizer Jane Kitchens and her husband, Bill, compiled and presented the church’s history, a labor of love that took more than a year to accomplish. Copies of the history were given to the members of the Mud Creek Baptist Association church.

Kitchens said the entire church came together to prepare for the event, especially the youth group, who took time to clean the grounds and exterior of the church. The service included a reading of the church’s history and music from the Royal Masters Quartet.

Lonette Berg, executive director of the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission, presented a plaque during the service. Pastor Billy Brewer gave an uplifting sermon that urged attendees to continue moving forward, even while looking back at history.

More than 175 attendees were present to enjoy the service and dinner on the grounds that followed. Brewer said although the church has a smaller number of regular attendees, there is a “very sweet spirit” that reaches out into the community.

“Even though we’re an older church, even though we’re a smaller church, there is still work to be done and people’s needs to be met,” he said.
