Our Church

Our church, Fellowship Baptist Church of Longview, Texas, continues to grow.  Lots of new families have joined our church in recent months, many of them young couples with very young children.

I firmly believe that without new members with growing families, a church is destined to die.  I am so grateful that our church is attracting new young (and older) members.

I think a great deal of the attraction to our church is our young, forward-thinking pastor, Reverend Galen Herrington. Galen and his talented wife Angie and their two young children are the type of people who attract other like-minded worshipers. Angie created and maintains our church website, Fellowship Baptist Church of Longview.  Additionally, we have two terrific young couples, Jason and Kimberly Kingston who are our Youth Directors and David and Liz Londeau who are our Children’s Church Directors. That, coupled with a variety of music that includes the old gospel favorites and contemporary Christian songs provided by our Music Director, Reverend Dennis Harris, all contributes to a growing church.

Our older members are well-cared for also.  Our Pastor Emeritus, Reverend Ben Clayton, is our Pastor to Senior Adults and leads our monthly “Young At Heart” meetings, consisting of songs, a program, and a potluck lunch the second Tuesday of each month.

One of the things I especially appreciate is our church’s decision to now offer the Sacrament of Holy Communion the first Sunday of each month. It’s good to be able to plan on when Communion will be offered and to be able to depend on being able to receive this important Sacrament frequently.

Our church offers Sunday School for all ages each Sunday at 9:15 a.m. Morning worship follows at 10:30 a.m. Children’s Church is held during the second half of Sunday morning church services.   Sunday evening worship is at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday night Prayer Meeting is at 6:30 p.m.  Wednesday nights is also the time for our youth meetings, including Royal Ambassadors (RAs), Girls in Action (GAs), and two Mission Friends groups,

Looking for a dynamic, growing faith-oriented church in the Longview, Texas, area?  Give Fellowship Baptist Church, located at 1818 Spring Hill Road a try.  We think you will like what you see.  See you there Sunday.

Our New Church Pastor

We at Fellowship Baptist Church in Longview, Texas, are blessed with a new pastor.

Galen Herrington and his wife, Angie, and son, Luke, joined us in mid-December, 2009.  Galen was a US Army Chaplain, serving at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, when our church called him to shepherd us.  Galen previously served overseas as a Chaplain in Iraq.

He and his wife have been such a blessing in our church. Galen doesn’t preach to us; he talks to us. His sermons touch our hearts and it is obvious that he is a man after God’s own heart. Everything he does is for the furtherance of the Gospel.

His wife, Angie, has taken over maintenance of our church website and is in the process of updating it at:
