First Baptist Church Celebrates 150 Years
On January 19, 1856 a group of seventeen believers, men and women who had been immersed according to the Scripture, met pursuant to appointment to take into consideration the expediency of organizing a Baptist church. After deliberation and individual expression, it was moved and seconded that they organize a church under the name of the Lanesboro and Susquehanna Church. The church then adopted the articles of Faith and Covenant and adjourned. Thus the first meeting was held and the Baptist Church came into existence.
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 20, 21 and 22 the church will be celebrating this anniversary. On Friday, October 20, at 7:00 p.m., a worship service will be held at 312 Jackson Avenue in the church sanctuary with Dr. Donald Hall as guest speaker. A reception will follow. On Saturday, October 21, at 3:00 p.m., a banquet will be held at the Starrucca House; reservations are required for the banquet. There will be a service following the meal with Pastor James Major speaking. On Sunday, October 22, a Dedication service will be held at 10:30 a.m. in the church sanctuary; speaker will be Pastor Fred Johnson. A luncheon will follow. Then at 2:00 p.m., there will be a service of worship with Michael Fritz, Youth Pastor speaking. There will be special music at all the services. The church extends an invitation to the community to join in this celebration.
