Past to Present
Since 1818, believers have gathered to worship at Flat Creek Baptist Church,
making it one of Hall County's oldest churches. Always a missionary church,
it started as a place of worship for the Cherokee Indians
and helped establish the Chattahoochee Baptist Association.
The church was a small rural congregation for most of it's first 150 years.
The advent of Lake Lanier in the mid-1950s almost brought the church
to an end. Though isolated on a peninsula and cut off from much of the
church field, the struggling congregation felt it still had a mission and
refused to close its doors. The next decade saw the most significant
growth in the history of the church, resulting in the construction of
our present sanctuary.
In the early 1970s, additional educational space was created in the
basement area under the educational wing of the building. In 1993,
our church had the opportunity to purchase property adjoining the church,
helping alleviate the shortage of classroom space. Further opportunity for
expansion was provided when the church purchased additional adjacent
property in the fall of 1999. In the summer of 2003, grading and construction
began for a new fellowship hall, children's educational wing, and gymnasium.
Dedication services for our new facilities were held on September 19, 2004.
May our rich history inspire us and give us the faith, strength, and courage
to serve God as we seek His purpose for our church.
