The History of Fellowship
The history of Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church is quite a miraculous event. The church held its first service in the basement of a home that was located very near the location of the old sanctuary on June 28, 1953 as a church plant from Haymore Memorial Baptist Church. Over the years the Lord blessed this congregation of believers and they were able to build the first sanctuary with educational facilities in the basement and on the upper level. The new sanctuary was completed in 1983.
As we consider all the Lord accomplished through His people in such a short time, we are truly amazed. We are blessed with a beautiful facility that consists of the current sanctuary, a fellowship hall in the old sanctuary, educational facilities as they were in the former building, and an older fellowship hall that is currently used on Sunday for classes.
Fellowship is often described as "a country church in town." That is an accurate description. We are located in the heart of Mount Airy and yet there is a country charm about our church. We have folks from across the spectrum of employment and education, but all are at home here at Fellowship. We are a traditional church that seeks to place an emphasis on the preaching and teaching of the Word of God. We believe in making everyone feel welcome and intentionally go out of our way to show our gratitude and appreciation for all who attend our services.
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to come and visit with us in any or all of our services.
