Pond Run Baptist Church

History Of Pond Run Baptist Church
by
Shirley Fulkerson Barnes.

According to a history of Pond Run Baptist Church 1820-1920, written by A. H. Ross, the church was established August 1, 1820 by Benjamin Talbert And Phillip Warden. The names listed in this early history were James Blevins, Jane Blevins, Betsey Brown, George Coleman, Martin Coleman, John Fulkerson, Phillip Fulkerson, Susan Fulkerson, Elizabeth Robertson, Jane Robertson, Phillip Robertson, Elizabeth Spence, John Spence, Betsey Williams, Edward Williams, John Williams, Nancy Williams, Polly Williams, Rachel Williams, Sarah Williams, and Stephen Williams. Many people in our community today can find one or more of these names in their family ancestry.

At first the church members met at homes. The first pastor was Rev. Benjamin Talbert. The first recorded church building was a log structure located near the present-day church. The building used today for worship was built by Talbert Robertson in 1856. Over the years many changes, additions and improvements have been made.

For one hundred eighty-seven years Pond Run Baptist Church has been a source of strength and comfort. A place to fellowship, a place to do God's work, and always a place to sing praises to our Lord for all His many blessings.

Thanks Shirley.
