Five years ago Enon Baptist Church, Centreville, almost closed its doors. But God had other plans and July 28 the church celebrated its bicentennial anniversary. During the service Rusty Owens shared the story of the near-closing and God’s answered prayer. Now the church has added on to the sanctuary, is debt free and runs 40–50 people in attendance.
Pastor Allen Cunningham preached for the service and recounted the history of the church which was started by Cahaba Valley Baptist Church, Brierfield. Church member Betty Reach and The Williamsons, a quartet from Oklahoma, brought special music.
“God is up to something at Enon Baptist Church,” Cunningham said.
Pat Musselwhite presented a certificate on behalf of the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission. Bibb Baptist Association associational missions director Bill Russell led the congregation in prayer.
The church hosted jubilee services Friday and Saturday featuring preaching by Carl Partain and David Beck and singing by Barry Rowland and Deliverance. A potluck was held after the service with singing by The Williamsons. (TAB)
