Albany church celebrates 50th anniversary

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany church is celebrating a huge milestone.

First Southern Methodist Church is celebrating their 50th Anniversary. They celebrated with worship and song during Sunday's service. Reverend Fletcher Rawls says he looks forward to serving the Albany community for another 50 years.

" Well I've only been here, this is my first, going into my second year, so I haven't been here very long, but just the idea of them serving the Lord for 50 years in this area and us carrying it on for the next 50 years," said Rev. Fletcher Rawls.

The Congregation had a dinner celebration Saturday night at Blackbeards and continued with a lunch celebration on Sunday after service.
