First Baptist Church of Pottstown
(Written and submitted by Rev. Monica Hall, Pastor)
The First Baptist Church Levittown-Fairless Hills started in 1953, with 10 people meeting in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Benton Grooms. After a survey of residents in the area based on that information, a parsonage was purchased in June. On June 14, 1953, the first Sunday service was held at the parsonage on Turnhill Lane in Levittown. Shortly thereafter Sunday school and morning worship services began at the historic William Penn Center in Fallsington.
In December 1954 ground was broken for an educational building. On August 21, 1955, the first service was held in this wing, which we now call fellowship hall. The sanctuary was built in 1969.
Between 1953 and 2022 we have had ten pastors. In June 2023 we called Rev. Monica Chavous Hall as our Pastor. We pray that with her leadership, we will grow and spread throughout the community and be here for another 70 years.
On Sunday, October 8th members and friends of First Baptist Church celebrated our 70th church anniversary. We gathered for worship and enjoyed a fellowship meal together.
The annual Blessing of the Animals was held on October 7th.
Other upcoming events include a Trunk or Treat Halloween alternative on October 28th and a holiday concert is planned for December 10th during our worship service.
We support a couple local recovery houses through food donations and other products needed.
