Shown is one of Marshalltown’s newest churches — the Chin Baptist Church, 9 N. 5th Ave. A special service Sunday at 12:30 p.m. will celebrate the new name and congregation. The church was formerly Liberty Baptist Church, which had owned the property since 2009. Liberty Baptist will be moving to a site on Iowa Avenue. Randy Mason, pastor of Liberty Baptist, said he expects the sale to Chin Baptist to be finalized by Sept. 30. The Chin Baptist congregation is made up of Myanmars, (originally from the country formerly known as Burma) who had been members of LBC for several years, but wished to be autonomous. The building’s cornerstone was laid in 1952, when it was known as the Grace Evangelical United Brethren Church.
