Going to church the First Baptist way

(I thought it would be interesting to use Sundays to focus on Rensselaer's churches and to see how many Sundays I can go before I run out of material. Indiana is richly endowed with religious denominations, with influences from North and South, East and West. This is part of that series of posts.)

The First Baptist Church is located at 2010 North McKinley Avenue, or on the highway just north or town. According to the Church Services Directory published in the Rensselaer Republican, the pastor is Daniel Hester, Jr. Sunday school is at 9:30 and Sunday services are at 10:30 and 6:00 p.m.
I could not find a website for this church, but did find it listed in a list of fundamentalist, King-James-only Baptist churches.
Rensselaer has two other churches that call themselves Baptist, the Harvest Baptist Fellowship and Bible Baptist Church. See those entries for links to information on Wikipedia and the religion maps at Valparaiso University.
