FBCLS 19th Anniversary

The article pictured here was published in the Douglas County Sentinel on Thursday, April 15, 1965. Church history is recounted in the article along with pictures of the sanctuary building as it appeared in 1965 as well as a picture of Lithia Heights Baptist Church. Lithia Heights was begun as a mission for FBCLS.

The article states the mission was started in 1964 and is located at Sweetwater and Miller Streets. The mission/church would be ready for occupancy in May, 1965.

At the time not only did FBCLS support the mission at Lithia Heights it also supported Mrs. Ray Shelton, a missionary in Uraguay.
