Additional Details:
Organized in 1929 with one hundred and thirty-eight charter members. It is a branch of the old Suffolk Baptist Church. The church is located in a fine residential section of Suffolk on the beautiful site of the old Gum property. The present building was erected in 1938 at a cost of over $60,000. (Plans are drawn for the erection of a corresponding educational building.) The architecture is colonial. Chimes from melodious 21 stop Austin organ are broadcast from the stately spire. The Auditorium is worshipful and impressive. A memorial window of exquisite colors with a pictorial representation of Christ as the Good Shepherd serves as the focus of worship.
