Celebrating the Glorious Past with Great Vision for the Future — that was the theme of Sardis Baptist Association’s 125th anniversary event March 27.
About 50 people gathered for the celebration held at the Lowery Community Center in Kinston. Games, activities and face painting were offered for children and youth.
Several of the association’s 11 churches displayed their church history, and Ralph Ward, associational moderator, shared the history of the association. The gospel group Blessed provided special music.
Lonette Berg, executive director of the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission, and Rick Barnhart, state missionary with the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions, each presented a commemorative plaque to James Preachers, director of missions.
The closing message was given by Bobby Dubois, former SBOM associate executive director.
