| 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,

PHIL CAMPBELL MISSION TRIPThe 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.
