Union Springs’ Liberty Baptist marks 175 years comment (0)

June 7, 2012

By Maggie Walsh


Liberty Baptist Church, Union Springs, celebrated its 175th anniversary May 13, the same day as the church’s annual homecoming and Mother’s Day. Pastor Ronald Earles said the Bullock-Centennial Baptist Association church had more than 90 attendees for the occasion, which was “really good to see.”

Church member Lily Hall read the church’s history, and Elizabeth Roughton and Tyson Hall brought the special music. 

Calvin Milford presented a plaque on behalf of the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission. Larry Jones, chairman of deacons, said receiving the plaque made the day a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“[The plaque] showed that Baptists are unified and supportive of each other,” Jones said. “To me, it was just a special day — to be a part of a church that’s still living, still doing the work of the Lord.”

The time of fellowship was followed by a covered dish dinner on the grounds. Earles said he hopes to see the church grow in the coming years, despite the rural setting and multiple churches in the area.

“Although I do want to see the church grow, I don’t want it to just be in numbers,” he said. “I want to see us grow spiritually — that’s the main thing.”
