West Side Baptist Church, Eva, celebrated its 50th anniversary Aug. 14.
Charter member Jeff Nelson shared memories and facilitated members in a time of sharing their testimonies. Music director Leah McRae led congregational music and a choir special. Randy Makemson, East Cullman Baptist associational missionary, presented a plaque, as did the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission.
“It was wonderful to see God’s hand in the church for 50 years,” said Pastor Gary Peebles. “We have watched Him move in many ways.”
Maybelle Mangrum, chair of the church’s anniversary committee, made an anniversary cake and cookies for the occasion. Lunch was served following the service.
