sbc_church_pic.jpgThank you for inquiring about Summertown Baptist Church                          If you would like to listen to sermons from Bro. Howard Kitter copy and past the following website to your browser, it's a little long to just type.

Our History Summertown Baptist Church was organized in August 1888. Early meetings were in member's homes, and a few meetings were held in Crane's Hall, a community room at the general store. The first meeting in a new church building was held on May 26, 1900.

The first building was a small church, having stained glass windows and an attractive vestibule beneath a tall steeple. In the belfry hung a bell whose mellow tones could be heard in the surrounding areas.

By 1950, the building had deteriorated and a new one was built, In 1976, the church was gifted with the land known today as the east parking lot, and in 1987 another gift was made of the property located across the road facing the present sanctuary.

The need for a larger sanctuary and more classroom space led the church to vote in 1986 to buiild a new sanctuary with a full basement connected by a hall to the old structure. On September 11, 1996 the church officially became Incorporated. In March 2001, the church purchased a lot on the east side of the church and in 2007 another lot southwest of the church property.

Recorded in the minutes of April 6, 1889,
"Oh that God may water this little vine with Heavenly dew and souls be born into the kingdom of His dear Son".
How He has answered that prayer!

How can I become a Member?
After attending our services you may be led by the Lord to become a part of our family here at Summertown Baptist. In your desire to join you may ask, "How may I become a member of Summertown Baptist Church?"
According to our constitution you may unite with our congregation in the following ways:

1. By Profession of Faith and Baptism.
If you receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord and follow Him in baptism by immersion, we welcome you into our fellowship.

2. By Letter
As a Baptist whose church membershuip is else where, we will be pleased to welcome you into our church family should God direct you here.
3. By Baptism from another Denomination,
Any person who believes the same faith and order as we do, may be presented to the church for membership after having been questioned and counseled by our pastor as to their scriptural faith. If their belief is found not to have been in order at the time of their baptism, then they may be presented for reception by baptism only. NOTE: It is faith in Christ alone that makes a Christian,
By Statement
In the event church membership records are not available for a transfer of membership, or id you were once a Baptist church member, but are presently a member of another denomination, we will accept you upon your statement on these conditions.

You may express your desire to fulfill any of the above by presenting yourself during the invitation at the close of worship services.
We give this opportunity, this time of decision, because every person Jesus called to follow Him he called publicly. Jesus said, "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven." Matthew 10: 31

Studing 1st and 2nd Timothy


The week of July 11 thru' 19th, 2011 was spent in mission work in Phil Campbell, Alabama. Fourteen youth and 11 adults participated. We stayed in Russellville at the 1st Baptist Church, where Cinthia and Lanny Benefield prepared meals. We took air mattresses and slept in the Sunday School rooms. Such a wonderful experience, to be able to give just a little of our time and effort to folks who had lost so much. We cleared out a basement from a house that had been blown away, built a porch on a modular home that had replaced one families original home, and did general construction work in other areas. Listed below are the people who participated.
