The photo you are looking at was taken at a spot on the Appalachian Trail called, McAfee Knob. It is near Roanoke, VA and is reportedly, the most photographed spot on the AT. As you look at the photo, I want you to think how people who have invested in Beale Memorial Baptist Church, have taken steps of faith for almost 150 years
Beale Memorial Baptist Church has a long and rich history in Tappahannock, Virginia. The church was founded in 1875 by the Reverend Frank Browning Beale. It was then known as Centennial Baptist Church, named in honor of our nation’s first centennial. Later, the church’s name was changed to Beale Memorial to reflect appreciation to its founding pastor.
Beale Memorial Baptist Church is mission-minded congregation. Its members are active in the expression of their faith. Currently, there are three active international mission projects. This continued work is being done in Ghana, Guatemala and Kenya. Our church is also engaged in various ministries throughout our community and around the state. In recent years we have assisted in disaster relief, home repair, installation of a well and septic systems, the building of handicapped ramps and other projects. Each ministry mentioned above required a person or persons, to seize an opportunity God set before them. Not only did they see it, they then had to take a leap of faith.
Each Sunday morning we gather for worship at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. We have a full complement of Sunday school classes for infants through adults. We have a place for you! If you can’t join us in Tappahannock for worship, we would love to have you listen in on our live stream, which you can find on our home page. Or, you can listen to any number of our podcasts. My prayer is that you can see an amazing horizon that God has in store for you. Our goal is to help you reach it.
Thank you for visiting us at Beale Memorial Baptist Church.
