THE BAPTISTS IN WELSH.
Address of Pres. Jno. H. Cooper at the
DIedication of the First Baptist
('lturch of Welsh, S~unday, November
The first record of Baptists I have
been able to find in Welsh is Septem- l
ber 13, 1887, when it seems a Baptist
church was organized under the name
of "Christ's Church," with eight mem- 1
bers. Ou November 8 following, Bro. I
A. G. Dunn was called as pastor. No 1
other record is found until April 27, I
1889, when a meeting of the church f
was held. Rev. J. 13. Hame, acting as
moderator at this time, live were taken I
into the fellowship of the church; two
by letter and three by baptism. On 4
the first day of August of the same
year, another meeting was held, pre
sided over by M. L. Davis. At this
meeting it was reported that the mem
bers. acting upon their individual re
sponsibility, had secured the pledge of
a lot upon which to build and $39;7.00
besides. Sunday after this, however,
the brother who had pledged the lot
upon which to build.) and who, by the
way, was Henry Welsh, the father of
the town,) died without making any
provision for the transfer of the lot
to the church and so it was lost.
About this time a number of our
brethren attended our state convention
which met that year at Lake Charles,
and endeavored to secure some assist
ance to build, but were unable to do
so; not even able to secure the prom
ise of our state board to give us a
pastor. In November following, a
meeting was held and letters of dis
mission granted to two of the thirteen
memnbers. So far as I am able tofind,
no other meeting was held until July
28, 1892. At the conclusion of a meet
ing held by Bros. M. E. Shattuch and
J. J. Baria, when it was found that
only seven members remained; one
was l1ot sight of and two excluded at!
that time. Bro. M. E. Shattuch was,
called as pastor and three days later,
on July 31, 1892, Bros. M. L. Sloane
and W. . '. Brown were ordained dea
cons. No further records can be found
until September 3, 1896, when the
church met. At the close of a meeting
held by Bros. E. J. Moberly and J. L.
Barret, when two were received by
letter, four under the watch care of
the church and two candidates for bap.
tism. The four received under the
watch care of the church afterward
presented their letters and were re
ceived into the fellowship of the church,
but those received for baptism were
never baptised until after the present
organization. One of them was hap
tised and received into the fellowship
of the church, but so far as we know
the other never has.
Bro. J. L. Barret was called as pas
tor and held regular monthly service
until April 11, 1897, when he resigned.
During Rev, Barret's pastorate there
were six received into the church and
three dlismissed by letter. $30.45 was
raised for all purposes.
Nothing further is known of Iap
Stists here until about the beginning of
S1902, when our state hoard sent Bro.
S. C. Self into this field as a mission
In the early part of May, 1!902, Rev. I
SA. L. J.ohnson, then general mission
ary for the state, visited Welsh and
Sassisted Rev, Self in a meeting of
SseveraI days duration, at the conclhs
ion of which, on the 12th day of May,
Sthe following persons met at the resi
m dence of Dr. Jno. H. Cooper and or

A building committee consisting 6f
J. F, Tubbs', W.- C. Brown, A.. C.
Shipman, H. M. Gray and John H..
Cooper, was appointed to secure a
suitable location and eatimate cost of,
a suitable building.
This committee soon reported that·
the location could be securtd and es
timated that $2,200 would be sufficient
for the erection of the building, where
upon the committee was instructed to
proceed at once to build, which they
did and by the 21th of December 1902,
thebuilding was far enough along
that a meeting was held in it and a
Baptist Sunday school, the first ever
held in Welsh, was organized with J..
F. Jubbs as Superintendent.
