On Jan. 18, Rev. Bob Parrish preached a guest sermon during the evening service at First Baptist Church of Rincon on his 75th birthday.
Rev. Parrish was associate pastor at FBC Rincon before he retired in 2004. Nicknamed “Brother Other Bob” by one of the youth since the senior pastor is also named Bob (Dr. Bob Rogers), he and his wife Nina remain active members of the church.
Rev. Parrish preached a sermon on “What to Do when You Get Old,” sharing about the faithfulness of old heroes of the Bible like Abraham and Moses.
Huxie Scott of Savannah came as a special guest and sang a song about not giving up on life when you turn old. At the conclusion of the service, the senior adults of the church surprised him by coming down the aisle with 75 balloons as the congregation sang “Happy Birthday.” Afterwards the congregation enjoyed a cake and ice cream fellowship in the Memorial Chapel.
