When did our story begin?
The Marysville Baptist Church’s story began in 1857 in a log church. In 1870 a new church building was constructed near the log church to accommodate the growing congregation. This second church building was dedicated in 1876. A third Church was built at 389 Canada Street and dedicated in 1905 and was functional for nearly 100 years. Yet, another chapter in the history of the Baptist Church in Marysville occurred in 2003 when a new modern Church was constructed at 150 Cowperthwaite Street. Our present facility features a gym, large well-equipped kitchen, a large foyer, several classrooms, a modern nursery, offices and Worship Center.
