In the summer of 1960, a few leaders from Central Baptist – Woodmore (Chattanooga) began a journey of faith in a rural area of Hamilton County near Georgetown. The first service of Meadowview Chapel was held at Meadowview Elementary School. The following summer, in August 1961, saw the dedication of our first building - a block and brick structure with seven classrooms, an assembly hall, two restrooms and a complete kitchen.
Meadowview Chapel became Meadowview Baptist Church ten years later in October of 1971 and joined the Hamilton County Baptist Association with fifty-four charter members. A new sanctuary was dedicated in 1978 with a seating capacity of 225. Thirteen years later, in November 1991, a new Educational Building was dedicated that included classrooms, a fellowship hall and a kitchen. By 1999, we had outgrown our sanctuary and were conducting two Sunday morning services to accommodate the people.
In the spring of 2000, we entered a stewardship campaign called “Forward in Faith." This campaign enabled us to construct the new Worship Center that includes a sanctuary with a seating capacity of six hundred plus additional educational space.
We conducted our first worship service in the new sanctuary March 14, 2004, with an attendance of 352. God has truly blessed our church and we thank God for the steady growth we continue to see in every area of ministry as we strive to spread His Word and love in our homes, families and community.
