This footage from First Baptist Church Austin captures scenes of a graduation ceremony at Baylor University in Waco. Also included are scenic images of the campus including Pat Neff Hall, the Judge Baylor statue, and the Women's Memorial Dormitory. Students and faculty in regalia happily talk with their families on campus, attempting to evade a rain shower.
Established in 1847, Austin's First Baptist Church has been an institution of the Texas capital for almost as long the city has existed. From its original location at 12th and Lavaca to its current location at 9th and Trinity, the First Baptist Church has witnessed the growth of the city from a frontier town to a vibrant city. The films in the First Baptist Church of Austin Collection feature a glimpse into the church's history, with footage of trips, youth programs, sermons, and celebrations.
