The First 100 Years of Lubbock

The First 100 Years of Lubbock's Church

Who were the first church assemblies in Lubbock?

The Quakers, who originated in Estacado and moved to Lubbock - they dissolved and melded into the other congregations.

The Church of Christ was the first group to hold a worship service in Lubbock.

First Baptist and First Methodist were the first congregations to officially organize.

First Baptist was the first church to build a building.

Regardless of who was "first," by 1909, the year Lubbock was established, there were seven thriving, established congregations - known currently by the following names: First Baptist Church, First Methodist Church, First Christian Church, Broadway Church of Christ, First Presbyterian Church, Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and First Church of the Nazarene.
