First Baptist Church celebrates 70 years in Port Alberni

On Saturday, June 23 and Sunday, June 24, First Baptist Church (FBC) in Cherry Creek celebrates its 70th anniversary.

On Saturday, June 23  and Sunday, June 24, First Baptist Church (FBC) celebrates its 70th anniversary.  It is with grateful hearts that the congregants look back over those years (1942-2012), appreciating all the helping hands that have kept the work of FBC alive and thriving.

To celebrate this event there will be an open house at the church at 6211 Cherry Creek Road from  10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, June 23. The community is invited to come and visit the renovated school transformed into our church, enjoy a free hotdog lunch, peruse memorabilia and pictures of the history of First Baptist.

There will be activities for kids as well as opportunities to have fun outside on the playground equipment.  We especially invite past staff and students of Cherry Creek School. You will enjoy the radical changes to your school and work place.  Former members of FBC youth groups are also cordially invited.

The 10:30 am service on Sunday, June 24 will have representatives from the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada.  We’ll also be hosting former pastors and out-of-town guests.  The theme of the service – Praise, Serve, Love –  will uphold and celebrate FBC’s mission statement:  “Serving Christ in the Alberni Valley”.
