This morning I went to the final service of Signal Mountain Baptist Church. My family has been in this church for decades. I spent my childhood and youth there and I have some very happy memories. This was the place where I was baptized and came into a relationship with Jesus Christ. During my time there I learned lessons of faith and how to be a good person. For years they were a progressive congregation where both men and women had a say in what happens.
They are merging with another congregation and will become in effect a satellite church. Like any institution its the people who are what matter most. I will miss this place as it was but they made the decision to forge a new future. Grace and peace to members of the past. Thank you Signal Mountain Baptist for helping making me who I am.
