Bear Head Baptist Church
The Bear Head Baptist church will celebrate its 140th anniversary this year. The church was organized in 1873. The building was moved from its original site near the Bear Head cemetery in 1934.
Vin Morris donated 1/2 acre of land across FM 1201 from the old Sivells Bend Post Office. Judge Mitchell and Commissioner Pierce agreed that the county road engine could be used to move the building. Mr. Isham Beasley furnished the lumber for the foundation and Mr. and Mrs. Hubert McKaig donated $50 to pay for the expense of moving and repairing the building.
On April 28, we will have two special services to celebrate this event. We will have our regular service at 11 a.m. during which we will have special music, take time to recognize our guests and sing some old hymns. After the service, the church is providing a meal and we will take time to eat and fellowship and renew old friendships.
After the time of fellowship, we will return to the sanctuary and have an “Old Time Gospel Singing.” We will sing a lot of the old hymns we all grew up with, have some special music and take time for testimonies from anyone who would like to talk about their time in the church.
We will also have copies available of the church history to help those who attended here refresh their memories of the church.

Gainesville Bible Church
Many of you who grew up in church remember singing the old nursery hymn, “Jesus loves me this I know – for the bible tells me so”. As adults today we have no problem wrapping our minds around the biblical truth that Jesus loves the little children. But what about the rest of what the bible tells us of Jesus? Fully God and yet fully man – born of a virgin – sinless life – substitutionary death – resurrection – ascension – creator of all that exists – intercessor before the Father for His own – future return and reign…?
At Gainesville Bible Church we believe in the full gospel – all of what God has revealed about His Son through scripture. We believe those parts that are easy to understand and comfortable within our personal worldview – and we equally believe those parts that are difficult to comprehend and often must reshape our worldview. Sometimes our acceptance and subsequent application of the truth of God’s Word requires more faith than at other times. But we at GBC stand firmly upon the entirety of scripture – God’s Holy Word.
We invite you to join us at Gainesville Bible Church as we discover the truth of God’s Word, accept His Word as absolute truth and endeavor to apply that truth in our lives.
Coming in May: Church Picnic 5/4

Marysville Community Celebration
Marysville Baptist Church will host the 87th Marysville Community Celebration Sunday, May 5.
The church service will begin at 10:30 a.m., and dinner on the grounds will follow. Families and friends bring picnic lunches, attend church, renew aquaintances, and reminisce about the old days.
Pastor Daniel Jones will bring the message, and this year special music will be presented by The Ambassadors from the Metro-Plex.
Special recognition will be given to the eldest man and woman in attendance and to whoever has traveled the greatest distance with memories to share on the community history.
Marysville's history reaches back to the late 1860's and stretches through both world wars and the Great Depression into the new millennium.
After so many families had sold their land to the U.S. Government for Camp Howze and moved away, Marysville could no longer survive as a town. However the family ties to the community were strong and they returned for a reunion or “homecoming.”
Marysville Baptist Church continues to bring the gospel message each Sunday morning as it has for almost 150 years, and what began as a celebration of the bank note payoff for the new church building in 1926 has become a celebration of the life of the entire community.
Everyone from descendants of early settlers and church members to friends, relatives, and current neighbors and residents are cordially invited to join in the church service and bring their picnic dinners to spread on the tables under the ancient oak trees for good food and fellowship.
