Old photos: Ceres First Baptist Church

While going through a bunch of old photos yesterday, I came across this disintegrating photo that I knew nothing about.  I could make out the words "First Baptist Church" over the doorway, but I had no other clues.  I emailed my mother about it, and she said the church is  the First Baptist Church in Ceres, California, the church where my mother was baptized and my grandfather attended as a young adult.  Throughout his life and many travels, my grandfather considered it his home church even after he moved across the world with his family.  The photo is almost completely withered, but I scanned what I had left.

Here's the church on Google maps, and it looks remarkably similar to what it looked like in the photo. 

More stories to come from my maternal side....
