December 20, 2012
The sanctuary of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, Slocomb, was full of “excitement and thankfulness” Oct. 28, according to Pastor Scott Byrd.
The Geneva Baptist Association church celebrated 125 years of existence with special guest speaker Randy Hagan, Coosa River Baptist Association director of missions who previously served as pastor of Pleasant Hill Baptist. A slideshow presentation of old and new photos of church members and special events also was shown during the service.
Former member Jeff Mills and his daughter, Courtney Nowell, led special music. Alabama Baptist Historical Commission representative Virginia Stephenson presented the church with a commemorative plaque.
Byrd said more than 150 people attended the anniversary service and fellowship meal that followed.
Byrd said he encouraged the congregation to “be committed to serving” and to “keep the same level of commitment that [Pleasant Hill Baptist] has seen from servants in the past.” (Neisha Fuson)
