First Baptist Church of South Londonderry is excited to announce our Ground Breaking Ceremony for our church building on June 8th at 3pm. It will be located at the site of the new building, 62 Crescent Street in South Londonderry, rain or shine. After the ceremony there will be refreshments at the Town Hall, just around the corner at 139 Middletown Road. Everyone is invited to join us for the ceremony and refreshments!
In August of 2010, the former church building was completely destroyed by a fire. This brick building stood on the hill for 176 years. While we have mourned and reminisced over the loss of our building, our church is strong and growing. We are very excited to be starting construction on the new building this summer. While we are and always will be the First Baptist Church, we envision our building as a community church. It is designed as a place for group meetings, community meals, and events.
For more information about our church and our building project, please check our rebuilding page. At this point we have enough funds from insurance and donations to begin this building project; however, with the rising costs of building, we do not yet have enough to finish the project. We're planning on leaving sections of the building unfinished and delaying putting a steeple on the building. With your help, we can complete this building project! If you want to make a contribution or donation of labor and/or materials, you can send them to P.O. Box 278, South Londonderry, VT 05155, or you can donate online at our website.
