Church on the Drive Celebrates 90 Years!

Posted on February 1, 2018

On March 4th Church on the Drive (formally College Park Baptist Church) will celebrate its 90th anniversary. We were founded by a group of men from First Baptist of Orlando on March 4, 1928 on the corner of Yale Street and Dixie Street (now Edgewater Drive). We have had 10 senior pastors in our 90 years. We have gone on too many mission trips to count from here in Orlando to across the globe, both adults and youth serving our fellow man and showing God’s love for everyone. We currently have 46 fifty year club members, folks who have continuously served this church for 50 years or more.

We have experienced many changes over the years and hopefully with each one we have served the College Park area well. We were the campus of Lee Middle School in 1956 while construction on the school could be completed and we are the home of Monarch Learning Academy as of August 2017.

I hope you will join us on Sunday March 5th for our Worship service and dinner on the grounds as we reflect on the blessings God has given us these past 90 years. This is a church still willing and ready to work together to serve God.
