New Temple Baptist Church, Dora, celebrated its 100th anniversary Aug. 28 with its former pastor, Ken Mostella, as guest speaker. Videos shared included prayer and the history of the church.
Special music was provided by the Vaughn Family, the interim minister of music Steven Aderholt and pianist Judy Andrews.
Joyce Peters of the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission presented a certificate recognizing the anniversary. A quilt made by New Temple WMU was on display.
“It was good to reemphasize the importance of the church as a family,” said pastor J.J. Creel. “It was a reminder of God’s faithfulness to a people who will be faithful to Him.”
