History Being Engraved on Marble Plaques

As we will move from Wattle Grove Baptist Church soon,I take some photos of this church in order to keep a good memories and also found some info about this church and its history:

The church was started to build in 1938 after Mr.Max Wells and his family bought a property on Gavour Road in 1933 (Church service were  held in the little hall of this property at the beginning). Many volunteers contribute to build this church, they even made the cement bricks by themselves.

Being interrupted by th way,but the activity resumed in 1946 ,thanks to the hardworking volunteers and family of Mr.Max Well,the church was opened in 1947 to the glory of God.

Today,we can see the two engraved stone plaques on the exterior wall of the building, they are white marble plaques with the following engraved words on it and the words were painted in black:

On one marble plaque,it was engraved:

To the Glory of God,

THE STONE WAS LAID
