How We Got Here 

1997

A group of Christians, primarily from First Baptist Church in LaGrange, held Bible Study meetings in Round Top, Texas.  They soon rented space on the town square by FM 237 and the church formed there was named Round Top Baptist Church.  Without a full time pastor, guest speakers preached each Sunday.  During this period, the church was given money specifically for the purpose of purchasing land and building a church building.  Using this gift, one and one half acres were purchased at the current site located at 440 E. Mill Street.

 

1999

A full time pastor, Matthew Diehl, was called and the name of the church was changed to Round Top Church - Christian Fellowship.  This name change allowed the church to reach out to all Christians regardless of Denomination.  The Fellowship grew by way of believers who had purchased second homes and retirement homes.  The Fellowship proved to be a place of Worship for those spending the weekend in the Round Top area.

 

2000

The church was able to purchase an additional half acre of land adjacent to the back side of the original property, creating a building site of two acres.  Round Top Church began a building program resulting in a multi-functional community building completed in 2002.  Within a year the building was paid for and the congregation was debt free.

 

2006

Veronica Skaggs, Children's Director, helped start a Vacation Bible School program that continues to reach out to the community today.

 

2008

The Fellowship was led by the Lord to call a youth minister, Jacob Sealy. This enabled the Fellowship to expand in many areas.  An elementary school age after school program called "Stand Out" was started.  This program partners with the local elementary school.  The church also began off campus Bible studies and a Sunday night youth service.

 

2009

The youth group began meeting regularly in the Fall of 2009 and reached out to the Middle and High School students of the surrounding school districts.  

 

2010

The Fellowship purchased 2.5 acres next to the existing site.  Future plans are to are to build a dedicated sanctuary in front of the existing building.  The additional property will be used for parking and recreation.  The youth program continues to expand into the surrounding areas and provides events and camps for the summer.  Round Top Church has provided Bible conferences for the community and surrounding area.

 

2013

The Fellowship purchased five acres with a three bedroom, two bath home on Round Top Road and Floyd Lane. The residence was purchased for staff housing.

The Fellowship added a Music/Youth pastor - Aaron Mullins to revitalize our Music Program and to develop a new thrust in Youth Ministries. 

 

2014   The Fellowship had a change in the music ministry. Aaron Mullins resigned and Ruby McGuill joined the Music program as pianist and vocalist.
