First Baptist Church McCaysville & Copperhill
The First Baptist Church McCaysville began in the fall of 1900, when a small group gathered in the Methodist Church to form McCays Baptist Church. For more than 100 years our congregation has kept the faith and vision of its founders. In 1906 a flood inundated the small town on the Toccoa River, causing many to seek safety on higher ground. In 1910, a devastating fire burned dwellings, businesses and the church. Through both, members ministered and comforted those in need. On Christmas day, 1961, the church building burned. Again, the members faithfully sought means of rebuilding and were strengthened through adversity.
Outstanding pastors have led the church in spiritual growth and missions outreach. The church continues to be a strong supporter of causes promoted by the Southern Baptist Convention. From among her membership preachers and Christian leaders have gone out to serve in other places. But of great significance, too, are those who follow. Many faithful members practice principles of Christian service and stewardship day by day. You are cordially invited and encouraged to join our fellowship.
