Who We Are

A Letter from Our Pastor

Greetings and welcome to the web site for Locust Grove Baptist Church. We are delighted that you have chosen to visit our web site. It is our hope that you will join us in person on Sunday and discover the love and encouragement of Christ through worship, fellowship, service and ministry.

This is a great community in which to live and raise a family. There is so much to discover in this community. This part of Madison County is rich in history. The natural beauty of the mountains and streams help make this the best place in Madison County to live.

Locust Grove was started in 1867 and has seen many changes over the years. We are no longer in the open country; we find ourselves on the rural-urban fringe. Houses and stores are being built where cotton once grew. We have learned to adapt and embrace these new opportunities of growth and ministry.

Many people are surprised to discover a church this size offering such a range of ministries on the rural-urban fringe. We are the longest established Baptist church in this community and yet in many ways we are still emerging. We are a vibrant, progressive church. Hopefully what you will discover about Locust Grove is its greatest asset – its people. May you discover a genuine sense of community, encouragement, and hope. You may also discover that Locust Grove is a place to call home and a people to call family.

Let me invite you to be our guest this Sunday at 9:15 AM for LifeGroups and at 8:00 AM or 10:30 AM for worship. I hope to see you then.

Dr. Robert A. White, Jr.
Pastor
