In 2009, a group of Christ-followers began to meet in the home of Lead Pastor Clay Reed. Soon after, with a few families they stepped out in faith and officially opened doors as “Southlake Baptist Church” meeting at Carroll High School on White Chapel Blvd.
The church has experienced God’s presence and blessing over the past two years, as families have joined and lives have been changed. The church has worked to reach out to the city of Southlake and has seen God’s favor in how our church has been welcomed into the community.
In May of 2011 the church stepped out in faith again and started organizing a lease agreement with Carroll ISD to utilize the empty Carroll Intermediate School located on N. Carroll Avenue. After much prayer and planning, SBC entered a 2-year lease with the district, and undertook a remodel and facelift to the facility. After 2 months of construction, our first service was held August 8th in our new facility. On that day, we stood in awe of all God had done.
God is still doing great things, and continues to bring families to join our church family. With an average attendance of 145-200 people, Southlake Baptist celebrated 2 years of ministry October 16th. We celebrated with worship and fellowship, and of course with Babe’s Chicken and Mister Softee ice cream. We know exciting times are ahead of us, we believe God will do amazing things in Southlake, and we look forward to many more years of ministry to this community.
