Hardin Baptist Church to celebrate 100 year anniversary
Big Thicket Messenger - September 2007
The membership of Hardin Baptist Church will celebrate its 100th Anniversary on Sunday, September 9, with special services during the morning.
Reverend Bill Fabriguze, a former pastor and now Director of Missions for the Trinity River Baptist Association, will deliver the message during the service. An historical marker will also be unveiled during the service.
All former members are invited to attend. The church will provide lunch immediately after the services have concluded. Other special activities are planned.
The church was organized on September 8, 1907 as Hebron Baptist Church with ten charter members and Rev. J.T. Dobbs as church pastor. Originally located in the old Lakeland Community, the church was eventually relocated to the original Hardin townsite and changed its named to Hardin Baptist. JUDGE W.F. “Bee” Hardin and other interests laid out the townsite in 1907.
The church is collecting photographs of buildings, events and activities associated with the Hebron and Hardin Baptist churches.
Rev. Tony Hines is the current pastor. Jakie Creel chairs the church’s 100th Anniversary committee.
