A South Georgia church is celebrating a big milestone, it’s their 175th Anniversary. 

First Baptist Church of Albany had a big celebration in honor of the occasion and also took time to recognize WALB for 54 years of broadcast ministry. WALB and First Baptist Church of Albany have been broadcast partners since May 1, 1960. 

 "Faithfully throughout the years we've had this relationship and just a great working partnership that allows us to be able to broadcast the gospel and share the gospel in thousands of homes,” said Butch Knight, Pastor. 

 The celebration continued with extended worship and dinner. First Baptist Church of Albany formed in August of 1839.
