Hartford’s Shiloh celebrates 125th anniversary comment (0)

July 25, 2013

By Julie Payne

It was a special celebration for Shiloh Baptist Church, Hartford, June 30 as the church marked 125 years of ministry. 

The anniversary day included a worship service with a message delivered by former pastor Robert McMicken, who served the Geneva Baptist Association church from 1981 to 1994. McMicken offered a word of encouragement to those who have anchored the church as well as to the younger generations coming up to be “the anchor in Christ that we need to be,” said Pastor Ricky Hall.

Hall said there were two baptisms during the service, and ensembles delivered special music. Dianne Brandon sang as well as worship leader Seth Dunnington. A celebration video also was shown featuring the church’s history. 

Lonette Berg, executive director of the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission, presented a certificate to direct descendants of Shiloh Baptist charter members, and a lunch followed the worship service. 

According to Hall, since January the church has seen 37 new members and 11 of those have been professions of faith. “You can tell God is working,” he said. “My prayer is for God to continue to save people. … It’s just exciting to see [Him] work.”
