Tuscaloosa’s Mount Paran marks 125 years comment (0)

November 14, 2013

By Julie Payne

Mount Paran Baptist Church, Tuscaloosa, celebrated its 125th anniversary Sept. 29 during an 11 a.m. worship service that began after Sunday School.

A former pastor of the church, Robert Shirley, spoke briefly about Mount Paran Baptist and his time spent there in ministry.

Interim pastor David Watson delivered the sermon, and a plaque from the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission was presented to the Tuscaloosa Baptist Association church by Jim Ryan, chairman of deacons. 

A fellowship meal followed the service, Ryan said. He noted the most memorable part of the day was “seeing people that had been members — maybe even when they were young — come back to celebrate with us.”
