Faith Baptist Church, Elida, Ohio, celebrated 50 years of ministry Sept. 25.
“We’re praising the Lord for the beginnings and the continuation of His blessings on the ministry here in this community,” says Tom Cooper, pastor of the church for 10 years.
The congregation and guests enjoyed dinner together after the morning service, followed by the opportunity for members to share their memories of the church’s ministry. Special guests for the day were Bruce and Ellen Snyder. Bruce was the first pastor of Faith Baptist Church and is a contributing author in The Pastor: A Guide for God’s Faithful Servant.
