Welcome to Our Church...

     Melrose Baptist Church is located on Highway 433 near Myrleville crossroads. the church originally started as a small Sunday School group that met at Melrose School House, a one-room school in the community. The church was organized on August 9, 1931, with 13 members and then a year later formally joined the local Baptist Association.  Melrose holds to the Baptist Faith and Message.

There is also prayer meeting and devotional time on Wednesday nights at 6:30. We also have a Local Ladies Lunch on the third Thursday of the month at 11:30 am for all ladies to come and fellowship together and share a meal.
