TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

A Tifton church is celebrating a big milestone .

First Baptist Church is celebrating its 125th Anniversary. Hundreds of people came out for church service and the" Dinner on the Grounds" event. The church is also raising money to buy a car for members Chris and Katie Nalls, who are career missionaries in Mozambique.

"We got word that they only have one vehicle and that when Chris is out of town on a mission, Katie has three children and she's isolated,” said Wayne Roe, Senior Pastor. “So, we want to hopefully raise enough funds to provide a vehicle for her and anything left over, a generator because the electricity there is sporadic at best."

Pastor Roe says they're hoping to raise about $25,000 for the family. You can help donate to the family by making a check payable to First Baptist Church.
