SGH Retirement

After 49 years of ministry serving in Arkansas and Texas, including the past 28 years at First Baptist Church, Lewisville, Texas—SGH is retiring on November 21.

Stephen G. Hatfield came with his family 28 years ago to serve as pastor of the First Baptist Church of Lewisville. At the beginning of June 2021, he announced his retirement from full-time ministry. As a church, we are so grateful for the way Stephen and Marcie have loved our congregation. We have experienced loss together, rejoiced together, and served our community together. After 28 years, FBCL is truly family to the Hatfields.

We will have several opportunities to celebrate the Hatfields and you are invited to join in the festivities!
