In response to the tragic fire that destroyed nearly their entire worship space, the First Baptist Church, Dripping Springs embarked on a comprehensive master plan. Both immediate rebuilding as well as long term needs were addressed in the visionary document.
The new church has been rebuilt on the old slab, though greatly expanded in size and capacity. A welcome gathering space is accessible from both parking areas. Second floor classrooms serve for Sunday School and meetings.
The old bell, miraculously saved from the fire graces the soaring new steeple. A local poet was inspired to honor the new steeple with a heartfelt poem.
