Mount Carmel Baptist Church, Fort Payne, celebrated its 75th anniversary April 26. The 10:30 a.m. service included singers from within the church and a special message, “I Changed Not,” brought by former pastor Billy Wallace.
The Dekalb Baptist Association church was presented with a plaque from the Alabama Baptist Historical Commission for its years of ministry.
Following the service, members gathered for a covered dish fellowship meal before meeting again for a picture presentation of the history of the church. During the presentation former pastors shared memories of the church and it was “just a wonderful atmosphere,” said church secretary Wilma Bullard.
