Historical Highlights


Fellowship Baptist Church began on July 24, 1993, with a small group of believers, as they met with Bro. John Merck at the Fraternal Order of Police building to discuss the possibility of a new church start. The very next day, July 25, 1993, the same group, had their first official meeting under the Hutchinson's carport with Bro. Shelly Adams leading the service. Twenty-eight (28) people were in attendance that day. There were no musical instruments, no hymnals, and no pews; folks brought their own folding chairs. There was, however, a sweet spirit and a desire to follow God's direction.
