Our church erected in 1743 was known as the First Baptist Church of Stonington. North Stonington wasn't established until 1807. The original building was at a site just south of our current church building. The only Baptist church in the state of Connecticut that is older is the First Baptist Church of Groton, it was orginized in 1705. That church is now known as Old Mystic Baptist Church. The congregation soon outgrew the original church, however, and in 1830, a new meeting house was built at the top of Pendleton Hill. That building still serves the members today.The original church was sold and converted to a barn, some time later the building was torn down and the boards used in near by Pawcatuck to build another building. In 1934, the congregation erected a granite marker on the site of the first church building. According to early church records, there were three doors in to the original church - one for the deacon, one for the women and one for the men. The pews were further divided, with men sitting on one side of the church and women on the other. The men and women were further divided according to their marital status. The records from the 1700's show church elders admonished parishioners for everything from drinking to dancing. The church elders ruled peoples lives back then. They had the final say in property disbutes and censured any behavior they found offensive.With each challenge they have encountered, they became stronger and created a foundation for our faith today.We invite you to become a part of the church today and a piece of its history tomorrow
