Celebrating our 50th Anniversary with North and South Alton Baptist
It was 50 years ago that Bethany Memorial along with North and South Alton Baptist Churches became full local congregations, in order to better serve their communities for Jesus. Back in March of this year, an event was hosted at Bethany in celebration of this anniversary, which included musical praise by members of North and South Alton along with Bethany. This past Sunday, North and South Alton graciously hosted members of Bethany Memorial, bringing the two congregations together once again, in celebration of their anniversary year. Bethany’s Choir and Murray Shaw joined in for an evening of praise and worship, for a wonderful evening celebrating 50 years guided by the cross.
