    This congregation was organized in April 1882 under the direction of the Rev. A.R. Griggs. Originally known as the Second Baptist Church, the fellowship conducted early worship services under a brush arbor. Land at this site was deeded to church trustees in 1893 by T.J. Brown and James W. Throckmorton, a former Texas governor. The first sanctuary was built here the following year. Active in community service and in the ordination of ministers, the congregation has played a major role in the development of the area for over a century. ** (1982)***
