CHURCHES OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY

ALL THINGS CHURCHES

In this project, we hope to combine all of our Church related itms.  Currently there are items in "News", and "Photos of Business, Churches and Places".  Other tidbits may be found in out of the way places.



Freedom Baptist Association

Here we have had a collection of 16 year books, of meetings, from 1935 thru 1992.  We wish to thank the person resposible for this donation.  The donated years ar as follows:

 Starting in March 0f 2021.  Until I remove this placard, it will remain "Under Construction"  It will take awhile because of other projects that are on going.  Only so much retired time to get pages built.  During 2020, Karen and I spent a day taking new pictures of as many Churches in the county and schools as we could find.  Any new material that comes our way will go into this Churches Project.  Any contributions will be appreciated.  Thanks, Jim
