Biographical history

The Enderby First Baptist Church was established October 6, 2007 in connection with the Baptist Convention of Western Canada. The group met in the Loyal Orange Lodge Hall and the old Presbyterian Church before it built its own church on George Street in 1909.The group was active with the Missionary Circle and had frequent speakers from various missions. Organizations included men's and women's groups, various choirs, youth groups and prayer groups throughout the years. Youth attended Sunnybrae Bible Camp and Gardom Lake Bible Camp. In 1970 an educational wing was built to the west of the church. The old church was torn down and the congregation held church services in the auditorium of the new school. In 1972 the Baptist Church became Enderby Evangelical Chapel. August 2007 the church celebrated its centennial in Enderby with three days of activities.

Custodial history

Annemieke Loohouizen was involved in the 2007 centennial celebrations of the church. She created displays and wrote a history of the church since its inception. In the process of this activity she located and collected some important documents which she felt should be housed in a safe place. The church trustees approved of donating them to the museum.
