Earlier today, Dr. Wayne Flynt sat down with Ms. Betty Williams, lifelong member of Auburn First Baptist Church, to record her oral history as it relates to AFBC. This is the inaugural interview in Auburn First Baptist’s Oral History Project:
The Oral History Project is an endeavor of the 175th Anniversary Committee in celebration of our Church’s rich history, and one which we hope will become an ongoing tradition. We believe it is vital to remember and emphasize that “The Church” is the people of the congregation, and that each of our individual stories is integral in binding us together as a dynamic Family of Faith.
In the weeks and years to come, therefore, we hope that this project will provide the impetus for all members to contribute the important stories of our respective individual histories—personal narratives which can be archived and shared with one another here and now, as well as shared with future generations.
