Academy Baptist Church, Sulligent, celebrated its 75th anniversary Sept. 8.
The Lamar Baptist Association church hosted five former pastors at the celebration service and each one shared a short message. Alabama Baptist Historical Commission representative Angie Cooper presented the church with a commemorative plaque.
A fellowship lunch followed the service and Lecial Hollis, chairman of the deacons, said the day was well attended with more than 80 people.
Keith Rhudy, who recently began serving as the church’s bivocational pastor, said it was an “enjoyable day to connect the past of the church with the present.”
And as for the future, Rhudy said he hopes the church “continues to be a lighthouse in the community for the glory of Jesus Christ.”
