ECBA Open House Sunday
On Sunday, May 23, 2021, the East Cullman Baptist Association held an Open House at the ECBA Ministry Resource Center to allow guests to take tours throughout the newly renovated/ redecorated Ministry Resource Center. Associational Missionary, Randy Makemson and his wife, Brenda Makemson; Ministry Associate, Debbie Keaton, along with Mary Ellen Holmes, Historian, and Janet Ferrell, Assistant ECBA WMU Director served as hosts for the event. The Open House kicks off the celebration of being an Association for 75 years. The Cullman Baptist Association divided into two separate Associations in 1946, forming the East Cullman Baptist Association and the West Cullman Baptist Association. Currently, the East Cullman Baptist Association has 52 churches. We will have special remembrance and celebration time at our ECBA Annual Meeting to be held on Tuesday, October 12th at East Side Baptist Church. Time is to be announced at a later date.
A very special thank you goes out to all who have worked tirelessly to help remove wallpaper, old carpeting, replaced doors, replaced lighting, painted, cleaned up & cleaned out, pressure washed, and so much more! There have been way too many volunteers to name them all. However, we do want to give an extra special thank you to Bill Wilt, and ECBA Trustee, a local contractor and member of Lake Catoma Baptist Church. Bill’s knowledge and skills were valuable in so many ways to help the project be accomplished and to stay within budget.
Thank you also to those individuals and churches who contributed, financially, to make the renovations possible.
