First Baptist Church of Aberdeen voted in the Summer of 2011 to dissolve and give all of its assets to the Susquehanna Baptist Association for the purpose of restarting as a new church.  Director of Missions for the Association, Dan Sheffield, took on the responsibility of leading the restart.  He decided that in order to preserve the 60 year history of the church, the restarted church would continue as First Baptist Church of Aberdeen, with a renewed vision for reaching the city of Aberdeen with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and an expanded vision of becoming actively involved in missions throughout the world.  We would love for you to join our efforts or at least to come visit us and get to know us.  If you are actively involved in another church, we would like to encourage you to continue serving the Lord where you are, but to please pray for us as we attempt to reach people for the Lord!
