Historical Sketch of The Macedonia Baptist Church

The Macedonia Baptist Church was organized in 1886 under the leadership of the late Reverend Charles Mitchell. At that time the church was known as “Tick Baptist Church.” During this time the church was a log cabin. In the early 1900 this building was destroyed by fire. The members of the church bought two acres of land from Mr. Robert Willoughby under the leadership of the late Reverend Lucis (Lucius) McCaulie who served for several years.

Around the year of 1908 the church name was changed to “The Macedonia Baptist Church.” From 1908 to 1945 several men served as pastor: Reverend Ruben Miller, Reverend N. W. Johnson, Reverend Freeman, and Reverend Coverson. The Macedonia Baptist Church also served as a school for black youth for twenty years in the Villa Rica area. Some of the teachers were: C. M. Hindsman, Mrs. Elinor King, Mrs. Hattie M. Dobbs, and Ms. Gennie Glanton. In the early 1940s the school was discontinued in the church and was transferred to town.

In 1940 Reverend W. E. Roberts was called to Macedonia. Tremendous progress was made under his leadership. Reverend Roberts Served thirty-three years. It was under his leadership that the Macedonia Choir and Usher Board were organized. In 1970 Reverend A. J. Bailey was called to Macedonia. He had served for five years by 1975. Under his leadership the church was able to remodel and make additions on the building. The membership that was around Two Hundred after several years grew up to about 380.
