First Baptist Church begins celebration
First Baptist Church of Ruston is celebrating its 125th anniversary this weekend, with a pair of familiar faces joining in the festivities.
Clyde Fant, who served as pastor at FBC from 1962-66, will serve as guest speaker for a worship service starting at 6 p.m. Saturday.
That service will be followed by a reception. The celebration continues Sunday morning as another former FBC pastor, Danny Wood, who guided the church from 1988-97, takes the pulpit for the 11 a.m. worship service.
