Crescent Hill Baptist Church
Crescent Hill Baptist Church is and has always been a community of folk who enjoy sharing each others stories about their faith and life. Many have taken the time to share their stories for the "record." The lists below primarily represent published books and albums known to the church and cited in the SBTS Library computer and the files of This is but a sampling of the many words--spoken, sung and written--by these present and former members of the CHBC faith community. Those instrumental musicians who "speak" in another manner are also listed. Eventually we\\'ll note those who\\'ve sung in the choirs, participated in Chime and Drama, and graced us with the Visual Arts.
