First Baptist Church Celebrates 100th Anniversary Sunday

It is no exaggeration to claim that First Baptist Church of Big Lake has been here since before, well, since before the City of Big Lake was here. 
 
Certainly the town’s history is characterized by cycles of change, with the population fluctuating according to the boom-and-bust nature of the oil industry, but through all of Big Lake’s history, First Baptist Church has been right in the thick of things.
 
If we were to transport ourselves backward through a century of West Texas lore, we would find a lake bed, a railroad depot, a hotel with a restaurant, two stores, and 40-50 people living in something resembling a township.
