History of Greene Baptist Church Greene ME

The Baptist Church of Greene was organized August 15, 1793, five years after the incorporation of the Town of Greene. In 1794, just west of the present fire station, a one story, 40'x36' building was erected and used for church services. It was unfinished inside, and had no heat. Until 1836, the building also served as a meeting house for the town, and a locked closet in the corner of the room contained the town's powder supply.

In 1827, after three decades of growth, the congregation chose to build a new church. A location was selected in the center of town, also known as The Village, and construction began. The pegged walls and timbers of the new building were so heavy, the workers were unable to raise the massive frame by themselves. They enlisted the help of the shipyard at Bath, and the job of raising the exterior walls was completed in one day.

A cyclone in 1870 blew down the steeple, but it was soon replaced and could be seen from several points about town.

During a thunderstorm on May 20, 1900, lightning struck the steeple and this lovely edifice, said to be one of the best rural churches in the Bowdoinham Association, if not the state, burned to the ground. A rapid response from the townspeople saved the parsonage (built in 1878), as well as many of the church furnishings, including the old Communion set. Purchased in 1812, this set now resides at the Maine Historical Society in Portland.

Plans were made at once to rebuild, and the current church was built on the same site as the previous building. A special service of dedication was held on June 5, 1901.

Several changes and additions have taken place since that time.

In 1952, funds donated by the estate of Walter Rose enabled the congregation to build a two-story addition to the rear of the church, providing space for Sunday School classrooms.
In 1977, a second addition added 20 feet to the length of the Sunday School, as well as a third floor.
In the early 1980's, a third addition was made to expand the sanctuary to it's current size.   Edit
