Lincoln Baptist Church in Coosa River Baptist Association celebrated its 125th anniversary Sept. 30 with an extended worship service.
The service began at 10:30 a.m. and featured special music by former church member Tara Combs and the church choir.
Tom Whatley delivered a message based on Joshua 4 to the approximately 200 attendees.
Sonja Adams, representative from the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission, presented a plaque to the church to commemorate the day. Randy Hagan, director of missions for Coosa River Association, also spoke to the congregation.
Following the service was a fellowship lunch and slideshow presentation featuring photos from church members.
Pastor Bill Goodwin said the day went very well “and there were a good number of people from the community and people who had grown up in the church … who had come back for this [day].”
“My hope and dream is that we’d continue to build on [the rich history of the church] and continue to reach our community for Christ,” Goodwin concluded.
