25th church anniversary celebration 1997-2022

  Celebration…what are we celebrating? 


  October 19 marks our 25th Church Anniversary here at Live Oak Baptist. We are joining together to celebrate this momentous occasion in grand style on October 30 in the 8:00am and 10:30am Worship Services!


We are so grateful to God for blessing us down through the years.  While 25 years is certainly a reason to rejoice, it means much more to us than just reaching a milestone in ministry. Our anniversary is a celebration of the life-changing vision God gave to our retired Senior Pastor, Howard Turner, and the countless lives He has touched through his leadership and the faithful prayers, love, sacrifice, giving and service of Live Oak Baptist. Bro. Howard has told the story to me about Bro. Merlin McCon bringing him to Live Oak to preach a few Sundays. The story goes on to that after a couple of Sundays Bro. Howard met with Bernice Cowan, Inez Cowart, Lillie Carson, Hank & Donna Roberts, Robbie & Mike Schillings and Ted & Marie Bales and they prayed to decide if they needed to close the doors or keep Live Oak Baptist Mission open and make it a great church. Because of their faithfulness and obedience…We are celebrating 25 years of fulfilling the ”Great Commission” of reaching, baptizing and discipling souls for Jesus Christ! What a blessing! Let me say it again, what a blessing!


  We invite you to join us for this special time of praise as we experience a dynamic anniversary filled with powerful worship services, prayer, a meal (after the 10:30am Worship Service) and so much more!  This is going to be a celebration like none other and we look forward to you being a part as we reflect on all God has done, and the great things He has in store for Live Oak Baptist!


  You might ask: how can I help? Make this day a priority to be here for not only Worship and Sunday School but the meal afterwards. You can help us reach out to people that helped make this day possible because of their faithfulness thru the years and invite them. You can bring your friends, neighbors and family.
