Created By: Lorin Kubishta


The Helix Baptist Church building was constructed and organized in 1893 on the southwest corner of Harrison and Columbia. It was started by charter members of the Helix Christian Church: brother and sister A.D. Brooks, brother and sister L.E. Penland, and Minnie Bayse. In 1895 the Sunday School was organized; in 1896, weekly prayer meetings began; in 1898, the church was dedicated, and in 1900, a bell was purchased.

The wood frame structure with bell tower was typical of architecture and construction of the late 1800s and is one of Helix’s oldest buildings. For most of its life, it was afiliated as a Baptist Church. The parsonage and gathering hall were built in the 1950s.

Currently, the building serves as the Helix Community Church and offers weekly services and youth programs to the community.
