South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Bamberg County Photos | Denmark First Baptist Church
The First Baptist Church of Denmark, located in Bamberg County, was established in 1844. In the early 1890s, its pastor was Reverend Henry Simms Hartzog, who went on to become the youngest president of Clemson University between 1897 and 1902. Today First Baptist Church maintains an ecumenical relationship with it sister church, Bethel Park United Methodist. Both churches are active within the Denmark community.
SCIWAY thanks Reverend Andy Hunter, long-time pastor of the First Baptist Church, for submitting the above pictures and information.
Reflections on First Baptist Church of Denmark
Andy Hunter expands on one of his photos, taken during a snowstorm in February of 2010: “Snow is rare in Denmark, so I stayed up late to take this picture because I knew the snow wouldn’t last.”
