Cedar Bluff’s Fair Haven marks 125 years comment (0)

March 7, 2013


Fair Haven Baptist Church, Cedar Bluff, celebrated its 125th anniversary last fall. 

Wendell Dutton, director of missions for Cherokee Baptist Association and representative for the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission (ABHC), presented the ABHC plaque to the Cherokee Association church to commemorate its years of service.

According to Pastor Randall Lawson, an anniversary committee planned the day. 

Photos of the church’s history were compiled and shown on a screen in the sanctuary, and Lawson delivered the day’s message. During the service, which Lawson described as “a worshipful time” with special music, he recognized church members and those who had established the church.

When looking to the future of Fair Haven, Lawson noted Fair Haven’s ongoing van ministry, which he said the church plans to continue. This ministry was implemented to transport area children to Fair Haven for church. The parents do not attend church themselves, but they allow their children to attend with Fair Haven’s assistance.

Lawson said it is a joy for the church to see the van door open and the smiling faces of these children arrive, many who otherwise may not have opportunities to attend.
