Baptist Church In Ashby Community Organized Sunday

A solemn service at 2:15 Sunday afternoon marked the organization of a Baptist Church at one of the oldest landmarks in Matagorda County, the Ashby community, about 15 miles northeast of Palacios.

The new church was organized under the leadership of Rev. Robert E. Black, who for the past fifteen years has served as pastor of the Markham Baptist Church, and is now the senior pastor of the Colorado Baptist Church Association.

Revival services are being held each evening at 8 o’clock this week in the school auditorium.

The newly organized church was named the Ashby Memorial Baptist Church, in consideration of the pioneer Christians of different faiths who labored there and many of whom are buried in the well kept cemetery nearby, the site selected for the new church building.

All-day services were held with Rev. S. M. Inman, moderator of the Colorado Baptist Association and pastor of the El Campo Baptist Church, delivered the sermon.
