History of Fayette Chapel United Baptist Church


   In the fall of 1998 several families of the United Baptist faith felt a need and desire to have an old time United Baptist church in central Kentucky and began meeting at various locations on a weekly basis.  These meetings were held on one Sunday morning and three Sunday nights a month and grew and prospered which led them to petition the Rocky Branch United Baptist Church in February 2000 for an arm to form a new church. 

    The Fayette Chapel United Baptist Church was organized in a wedding chapel in Lexington, Kentucky on May 13, 2000 with twenty-five members.  The organizing presbytery consisted of the following Paint Union Association ministers:  Elders Heber Burchett, Bruce Fyffe, Arvil Murray, Jr., Charles Price and J.D. Rice.

   Immediately after organizing, the new church began to make plans for a permanent building.  Difficulties in getting the required building variances led the church to consider purchasing an existing building.  The search led them to Paris, Kentucky where they found a church building for sale.  The church held their first meeting in their new home on the second weekend of November 2000.

   The second weekend of November was also set as the date to hold the annual Homecoming Meeting, which began at the home of the late Elder W.L. Murray in Lexington, Kentucky.  This meeting has been conducted by United Baptist ministers every year since 1950.  Fayette Chapel traces its line back to this meeting and virtually all the original families who were in this meeting are represented in the organization of the Fayette Chapel church.

   Fayette Chapel has grown and prospered since and has been blessed to touch and spiritually enrich the hearts of many.  Our prayer is that God will continue to bless Fayette Chapel church to reach out with love to all who need and desire to worship Him in spirit and truth.
