January 30, 2014
Randolph Baptist Church in Bibb Baptist Association celebrated its 150th anniversary Nov. 10, 2013.
During the service, two former pastors, several members and the wife of an interim pastor all shared their memories of the church’s past to a crowd of about 200.
Mavis Gates, representative from the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission, presented a plaque to Pastor Tony Reynolds.
Rep. April Weaver also presented a plaque, which was signed by Gov. Robert Bentley.
Reynolds, who delivered the sermon that day, said the church wanted the anniversary service to be a celebration of what God has done. “We didn’t want it to be about us but (to) focus fully on Jesus,” he noted.
Following the service was a “wonderful dinner on the grounds,” Reynolds said.
