First Baptist Celebrates 178 Years


First Baptist Church will be celebrating their 178 years of Christian service on Sunday, September 18, 2011 during the 11:00 a.m. Morning Worship, on what the City of Frankfort has declared as "FIRST BAPTIST DAY."

First Baptist Church was organized in 1833 and has served the Frankfort/Franklin County community with distinction. The church edifice is on the National Historic Register. A distinctive array of laypersons have populated First Baptist Church through the decades. Outstanding pastors have led the congregation including the former pastor, the late Dr. K.L. Moore, Jr., who served for 46 years to the current pastor, Pastor Robert Earl Houston, Sr.

Festivities will include words from leaders of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and local government officials. Music will be provided by the FBC Magnificent Mass Choir under the direction of MInister of Music Elijah Griffin and Director Sheniqua Roberts.

Special recognition will be given to the Man and Woman of the Year and Deacon Curtis Roberts will be honored during the after-worship meal.

The guest speaker is Stellar Award nominee Dr. Bernard J. Sutton, pastor of the Acme Missionary Baptist Church, Chicago, IL. We invite our friends and former members from throughout the area to share this wonderful occasion.
