1926 Sept 13 – City Mission Society – First planning meeting about having a Baptist church in Eastwood
1927 Jan 9 – 1st Service was held in Palace Theatre with 42. They voted to proceed with a Prayer Meeting on a Thursday Night and a Sunday School. Regular services continued for 16 weeks at the firehouse – Eastwood Hose House #2
Before the 16 weeks were up, the congregation voted to buy a house and name the church, Eastwood Baptist Church.
The church’s home was in the former Senator Nichols house and on May 1, 1927 they called their first pastor – George Hobart.
In 1954, the church dedicated a new sanctuary and in 1960, they added an Education Building.
Eastwood Baptist has been serving Christ in Eastwood for over 90 years.
