Worship at Hoggatt School June 3






The Squaw Creek Church, which reorganized in 1868 as First Baptist, met in the one-room Hoggatt School from about 1862-65.  The restored school is now on the grounds of Meeker Elementary, 300 20th St.  As part of our 150th Anniversary celebration, we will have worship at the Hoggatt School on June 3.  Afterwards we will head over to Inis Grove Park, a couple of blocks away, for a picnic lunch.  More details are available on our 150th Anniversary page.
