Immanuel Baptist to celebrate 100 years

ROSCOMMON – On June 23 at 11 a.m., Immanuel Baptist Church of Roscommon is delighted to celebrate its centennial anniversary!
Founded after World War 1 as a Swede-Finn ministry to loggers who were cutting the old-growth timber in the Higgins Lake and Roscommon area, the church soon built a permanent building at the bottom of Pioneer Hill, called Gerrish Baptist Church. The church built a new facility and moved in 1964 into Roscommon, located across from the Roscommon post office. After starting Immanuel Christian School in the fall of 1977, in 1981 the church bought 30 acres and relocated to its current 2794 West Maplehurst campus, just west of County Road 100.
Hundreds of local citizens, elected officials, and visiting families of former pastors will gather for the 100th and all are invited for the June 23rd jubilee, followed by dinner on the grounds. Dr. Dave Hansen, the current lead pastor at Immanuel since 1995, has tapped Dr. Bob Loggans and Rev. Dave Loggans as the day’s guest speakers (sons of Rev. John Loggans, who pastored the church in the 1950s). Elected officials on the local, state, and federal levels will greet guests, and special music will be provided by musical teams serving as summer camp staff at Camp CoBeAc in Prudenville.
Special 100th anniversary gifts, a catered BBQ luncheon, and fellowship with former and current church, school, and staff families impacted by the church in the last century will be enjoyed by all.
