Worth County- Red Oak Baptist Church in Doles was founded 150 years ago.

For their anniversary, the church produced a history book. Now, Governor Sonny Perdue has requested the church put copies of the book in the state archives and the governor's mansion library.

"We're very proud of our heritage at Red Oak and the people that came and saw the need to establish a church in this community 150 years ago. We hope that in future generations people will look back at us and find us as faithful as our forefathers," says Joyce Carpenter.

About a dozen members of the church will head to Atlanta Thursday morning and present a copy of the book to Governor Perdue. They will hold their 150th anniversary celebration November 7th.
