Sunday, July 12, First Baptist Church, will have a special anniversary to commemorate 75 years as an organized church in this community. There will be a special service beginning at 10:30 A.M. in the sanctuary, followed by a meal in the Family Life Center.

Established on July 11, 1940, the church is the founding Baptist congregation in the city and began at a time when there was not a church in Prairie View, the community that would become Bridge City.

First Baptist was founded by 28 charter members and with J.B. Perry as the first pastor.

All present and past members and others are invited to celebrate with us. If you can attend the special event please call 735-3581 or email anniversary
