Pray for First Baptist Church of Reed City in Reed City, Michigan
First Baptist Church of Reed City was organized on April 2, 1872, and a church edifice was erected that same year. It was the first church built in the Todd Slashings Settlement, which later became known as Reed City. The church building was also used as the first schoolhouse. In 1972, First Baptist moved to its current location and built an auxiliary building that housed a small Christian School for many years. First Baptist Church began the revitalization process in late 2019 and is slowly but steadily growing by God’s grace.
Pastor Lee Lennox grew up in the Metro Detroit area. He accepted Christ as his Savior at Harvest Fest in Flushing, Michigan, in 2005. With his wife Melissa and their eight children, Lee moved to Reed City in June 2019 to serve at First Baptist Church of Reed City. Lee graduated from Maranatha Baptist University in 2015 with his bachelor’s degree and finished his master’s degree in Bible at Maranatha Baptist Seminary in 2019. Lee and Melissa are both working on their Doctor of Ministry from Bob Jones University, located in Greenville, South Carolina.
First Baptist Church provides an addiction recovery program called Freedom That Lasts, the only recovery program offered in Reed City. Freedom That Lasts is a discipleship ministry geared toward those enslaved in life-dominating sins, overcome by hurtful events of life, or anyone wanting to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Their church is also blessed to have a gym and soccer field, which several private schools and youth programs have been able to use during the various sports seasons.
