To all those who attended the Sept. 15 - FAITH of our FATHERS event.
On Sept. 15th we stepped back into time 200 years ago to the year 1812 and
observed a dramatized historical Baptist church service.
Issues of discussion during the reenactment were:
Separated seating by gender [men on one side, women on the other]
Use of musical instruments during worship [no instruments used in 1812]
Whole families were seated together [assembly was not divided up by age]
Sin and Holiness sermons [common theme during these times]
The Indiana Baptist Historical Society would like to extend a warm thank you to
all the people and organizations who contributed in making this event possible.
Without your assistance we would not have been able to accomplish the first FAITH of our FATHERS historical reenactment.

Also a sincere special thanks is due to all the cast members who not only took it upon themselves to do “time era” wardrobe
research but also in most cases made their own costumes from scratch! You truly have won my heart and I thank you for your
sacrifice in such a noble cause as pointing us all back to the “old paths” Jer. 6:16
Your affectionate brother in Jesus Christ,
