Pastor Rick Douglas said God “has richly blessed” Creek Path Baptist Church in Guntersville, which celebrated its 50th anniversary Oct. 10.
“This church is loving, missions-minded and dedicated to investing in children,” he said. “It was wonderful to see all of those characteristics come together in our celebration.”
The guest speaker for the morning was Ted Traylor — pastor of Olive Baptist Church in Pensacola, Florida — whose in-laws helped start the church. Traylor preached a revival there when the church started in 1971.
Frank Jones — who also led music at the church during revival services in 1971 — provided the special music for the celebration, along with the church’s worship team and David Bearden, minister of music.
Throughout the day, photos were on display, and those present received a copy of the church history and an anniversary coffee cup. Children received candy bags. The church has more anniversary celebration activities planned for 2022.
