Second Baptist Church celebrates anniversary with bowl-a-thon


LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The Second Baptist Church held a bowl-a-thon at Market Square Lanes. It was all to celebrate the 142nd anniversary of the church.

Church Deacon Nate Austin said it’s exciting to be a part of such a historic church.

“We’re here celebrating, bowling. We got old and young out bowling, so we’re excited because well, 142 years is something to be happy about,” said Austin.

Austin said the celebration will continue with a Women’s Luncheon at Faith West on April 5. The final celebratory event will be on the Church’s anniversary on May 18 at the Second Baptist Church. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
