THE planting of an olive tree signified the hope for a long future for the Dalby Uniting Church at its centenary celebrations on 11 November.
The former Methodist church sprang to life with a packed service, inspiring worship with a great blend of old and new music, cake and delicious food; all the ingredients for a wonderful celebration of 100 years of worship.
Over 180 people joined in the festivities.
Tongues wagged as old friends returned for the day and caught up with each other.
A piece called Little Church on the Corner was written for the occasion by in-house composer Noeleen Johnson and focused on the faithfulness of God who will lead the congregation on into their second century.
