Big Bottom Missionary Baptist Church was organized by a council of seven persons on the fourth Sunday of June 1912 in the Big Bottom School House. The Reverend J.C. Cline was made pastor earning just five dollars a month. Services continued in the School House until the Big Bottom Church was completed on April 30, 1914. The dedication sermon was brought by Dr. Johnson. Electric lights were installed on October 26, 1931. A hat was passed around to pay the bill. On November 18, 1943, a Parish Day Service was held. They had to play records of speakers because it was war time and there were restrictions on gasoline, which made traveling limited. A missionary from India was in the area and agreed to speak.
We moved into our new church building October 21, 1984. Our pastor was Raymond Cobb. He was with Big Bottom for twelve years. The first revival was held by U.G. Wolfe. June 1, 1989 the old building was burned. June 3, 1989 dirt was removed for construction of the new activity building. December 1989 the first Christmas dinner was held in the activity building. November 30, 1997 Fred Christian became our new pastor and he is still our pastor today.
Just some of us getting together to bring our prayer requests and needs to the Lord and laying it all on the alter.
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 18:19
Since beginning our special prayer meetings, 6 have been saved that we've been praying for. We've also been praying for some to come to church, and one has started coming.
GOD is good and still answering prayers!!!!
