The American Baptist Women of First Baptist Church have assembled a collection of recipes under the title, “Break Bread Together.” Recipes come from every group in the church, and most periods of its history. The following is taken from the preface to the book:

“They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and prayer.” --Acts 2:42.

The First Baptist Church celebrates 175 years of faithful service and fellowship with our Lord, our fellow church members, the town of Grantsville and Calhoun County.

While reviewing our history, we find that there were always many times to “Break Bread Together.” The early church members would gather together for a meal, following the church services. A trip to church in 1833 meant an all-day event, so, of course, food would be involved. There were always picnics on the grounds, box socials, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and Association meetings, which meant opportunities to “Break Bread Together.” Down through the years, Mother-Daughter dinners, Father’s Day picnics, Fall hay rides, sweetheart dinners, Fifth Quarter for young people, Junior round up, visiting revivalists, and mission groups gave more memorable occasions for sharing our “Bread.”

During times of disaster, joint church affairs, community events, football meals and food pantry outreach, we are still finding ways to share our bountiful supply of food. Recipes have changed through the years, from time consuming fried chicken, hearth baked beans and homemade light bread, to potato casseroles, pasta salads, soups, and shredded chicken.

Over the last 175 years, families have changed and the ministers who blessed the meals have changed, but we have remained constant in our faithfulness to the Lord and the love of shared meals with our fellow men.

Let us break bread together on our knees (on our knees),

Let us break bread together on our knees (on our knees).

When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,

O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us drink wine together on our knees (on our knees),

Let us drink wine together on our knees (on our knees).

When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,

O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us praise God together on our knees (on our knees),

Let us praise God together on our knees (on our knees).

When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,

O Lord, have mercy on me.
