We're Turning 125!
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2016 was a big day for Alabama Baptist Children's Homes & Family Ministries (ABCH)! That's right, it was our 125th birthday!
Yes, we may be as vigorous as ever today, but we have been around for a long time. And we want to celebrate all the ways that the Lord has used our ministry to protect, nurture, and restore children and families since 1891. On our anniversary Sunday, we gathered with Evergreen Baptist Church in Evergreen, AL for a birthday celebration. This was especially meaningful, because ABCH was founded in Evergreen! The original ministry was based there until 1923, and Evergreen Baptist was the church family of all of our kids in those days.
More information is available on our new history website about how you can join in on the celebration! All throughout 2016, we'll be looking back and remembering, while we also forge ahead to the future of our ministry to the children and families of Alabama.
We can't wait to see what God does next at ABCH!
