American Baptist Churches of Pennsylvania and Delaware

First Baptist Church of Ulysses has reopened its doors for worship. It's been exciting to hear how God has been at work in the community and with the church remnant to re-establish this congregation. Former Pastor Rev. Ron Troup had helped us reconnect with the church. Pastor Ron writes in a Facebook post, “From 1986 to 1995 I served a pair of churches in Potter County, one of which was First Baptist Church, Ulysses. A while ago I heard that First Baptist had ceased to gather for worship and shut their building, sad news but a common story for small churches in rural communities. But some folks kept the faith, and would not give up. Today they had their first Sunday worship back in their building with their new pastor." This is truly a 'resurrection' story
