According to a newspaper article, a Baptist church was to hold its groundbreaking on Sunday, August 16, 1959 northeast of the intersection of U.S. 36 and State Road 267, in the Avon Heights addition. The church had moved from Brownsburg on March 1, and since that time had been holding its services in the Avon Bank Community Building. Owen Bowling was the pastor.

NOTE: Today the church is known as Faith Baptist Church of Avon. Its address is 7090 E. US 36.
