Baptist in the Grapevine prairie area began meeting in their own homes as early as 1846. Worship services later were held in a log schoolhouse on what is now Dooley Street in the community of Grapevine. On December 25, 1869, the pioneers gathered to form a Baptist Church. The eighteen charter members chose A.J. Hallford as their first Pastor. The Church’s first sanctuary was completed in 1871. Over the years, First Baptist Church of Grapevine has grown steadily in membership and has provided significant service and leadership to the community. (1984)

Fellowship Church – Grapevine, Texas (Dallas)

I lived in the Dallas/Forth Worth area for three years and passed by Fellowship Church many times, but never visited this place. I actually haven’t been to church for several years because I’ve had so many REALLY bad experiences. But on March 7, 2010, I decided to stop by here to get some video to share with y’all. So I hope you enjoy it! They have several locations: Grapevine, Dallas, Fort Worth, Plano, and even one in Miami, Florida.

Fellowship Church in Grapevine, TX is where my wife and I first met, and where we are members today. This church does some amazing things and impacts the lives of so many people. The scope of the church’s ministry is simply mind-boggling. With 5 locations, a dynamic and inspirational pastor (Ed Young) and thousands of members, its amazing to think that my wife’s family was actually part of the tiny church that grew to become the one it is today. One thing that we have learned the hard way is that with a church this size, you really have to proactive with involvement. Its not like a smaller church where you go to and you automatically find yourself receiving an invitation to attend that evening’s potluck dinner. You really have to take your pick of hundreds of different types of programs to get into, and go after it.
