Friendship Baptist Church was established in 1839. I’ve had trouble locating a good history, but have learned that this is the oldest church standing in Sumter County.

    Mr James Gaston can provide more history on Friendship Baptist Church. I have many childhood memories growing up in this church.

  3. John Arthur Battle

    I was baptized into this church by Rev. E. M. Palmer in 1949. He was also my high school principal in Ellaville, GA.


    Do you know the year of construction for this church?
