A very special thank you to Bob & Esther Burroughs for their contributions to our 95th Anniversary on October 19th!

In addition, we thank our 95th Anniversary Choir and the musicians for their truly spectacular music.
The sanctuary was filled with 400 Cradock Baptist members, former members, friends and family. The worship service was followed by a catered luncheon where many friendships were renewed and many memories of Cradock Baptist shared. It was a day of thanksgiving and revival. Now, we are all focused on the Lord’s will for our church as we seek to take our ministry outside the walls of Cradock Baptist Church. Join us this Sunday at 11:00 AM and be a part of our revival!
