DO YOU REMEMBER?
THE SECOND CHURCH for First Baptist is pictured above, left, and inside with Dr. Harold Seaver, on right, circa 1949. This second sanctuary was dedicated in 1895 and served on the corner of Irby and Palmetto Streets until the present church opened in March of 1951. The First Baptist congregation is celebrating its 150 year anniversary this Sunday, May 22, with worship services at 11 a.m., followed by a banquet. Services are televised live on WBTW at 11 a.m.
