Hutchins in Dallas County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
First Baptist Church of Hutchins
The town of Hutchins began around 1860. Baptist families worshiped with other denominations and privately until establishing Hutchins Baptist Church in September 1904. Dr. George Wharton became the first pastor. Parishioners met at the Methodist church before completing a wooden sanctuary at Mills and Athens streets in 1911. Throughout its first century, the congregation grew in membership and in facilities, including a Baptist school that operated for nearly thirty years. Generations of dedicated, generous members have used education, music and mission programs to strengthen ties within the congregation and beyond in service to local, regional and worldwide communities.
