Corinth Baptist Church, Hayden, celebrated its 100th anniversary Oct. 20.
Charles Newsome, a deacon at the Blount Baptist Association church, said there were about 100 people who attended the morning service. Several former pastors attended and shared memories and words of encouragement with the congregation. Lonette Berg, executive director of the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission, presented the church with a plaque, and local singing group Three by Grace provided special music. A luncheon followed in the fellowship hall.
“It was an enjoyable day,” Newsome said.
Pastor John Fallin, who has served there for more than four years, said it was a “great day to be in the Lord’s house” and would like to see the church “continue to be a Spirit-filled church in the community … where people can come and worship the Lord for another 100 years or longer.”
