Fort Payne’s Allen Memorial marks 75 years comment (0)

October 3, 2013

By Julie Payne

Allen Memorial Baptist Church, Fort Payne, celebrated its 75th anniversary Aug. 18, the very day the DeKalb Baptist Association church was founded in 1938.

Musical presentations were featured during the service that began at 10 a.m., and Pastor Ken James said the program was “well planned.” 

James also noted that during the service, several missionaries and former pastors from Allen Memorial Baptist were recognized.

Special guests attending the service included the mayor of Fort Payne, Larry Chesser, as well as Ken Clement, director of missions for DeKalb Association. “We had a full house,” James said, adding that at least four states were represented by guests.

Lonette Berg, executive director for the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission, presented a plaque for the church’s 75 years of ministry, and James made a challenge for Allen Memorial’s future.

A lunch followed the service in the fellowship hall, which James noted was “decorated like a Ritz Carlton.”
