Update on First Baptist Church of Nanty Glo
Blessed to report that in spite of the devastating fire of November 8th, the First Baptist Church is alive and well and worshipping with Laurel Mountain Bible Church of Mundys Corner!
Although the 995 Second Street address remains a pile of burnt rubble and a cement block shell of an annex, progress is being made to restore the church building on this same site. Work has been delayed due to a necessary abatement of a small portion of linoleum containing asbestos that needed removed. The contract for demolition of the building is out for bid, and local contractors have been contacted. A physical inventory of loss is almost complete, and the transition of locations and transformation of Laurel Mountain Bible Church is well underway.
November 29 marked the day in FBC history when it’s congregation merged with the congregation of Laurel Mountain Bible Church at Bobwhite Lane (Mineral Point Pa. address) just off Swigle Mountain Road. The Christmas season lends itself well to the fellowship and sense of unity that our folks enjoy, and the sanctuary which was built to hold est. 145 people is comfortably filled. A blended Board of Deacons & Trustees from both congregations has been working well together, praying for wisdom and discernment as we recognize God’s Plan for both churches. Shared responsibilities, shared blessings! A blended Praise Team, excellent Sunday School and Bible Study programs for Men, Women & Youth, continued programs ministering to our community and numerous activities working with the local VFW Post and BV school district fill the calendar. God is surely blessing both FBC and LMBC.
We will continue to update the website as more of God’s Plan for us is revealed! In the meantime, all services and programs on the same days and times listed on the website are intact, albeit at the Laurel mountain Bible Church location. Join us, and see proof that FBC is enjoying God’s abundance!
Psalm 66: 12b “We went through the fire, but you brought us to a place of abundance.”
