Burrton Bible Church


The Burrton Bible Church was founded April 24, 1977 as the result of a growing Bible study held at Brigadoon and led by Pastor Aaron Smith.  Membership of the Church quickly grew to over 100 under Pastor Smith's ministry.  After 11 years as Pastor, the Church Board asked for Pastor Smith's resignation.  The following 20 years concluded with the Burrton Bible Church disbanding.  The building was later donated to a new mission of the Medora Community Church.

Burrton Mennonite Church


The origin of the Burrton Mennonite Church has been traced to the late 1800's when Mennonites already living in the area began buying farm land around Burrton.  Services were held in private homes for many years, until the Church was organized.  The original building was located on South Colorado street.  Groundbreaking for the new building at 429 N. Reno was held April 13, 1958. Pastors included James Gundy and James Dunn.  In January 2016, the Mennonite Church disbanded due to declining membership.  Most remaining members began attending the Halstead Mennonite Church.

First Baptist Church

The Baptist Church was organized in the Boss schoolhouse, two and one-half miles west of Burrton, in Reno County, September, 1876, with sixteen members. In the fall of 1877 the membership had increased to forty-two members. Old Father Camp, the organizer of the Church, remained two years. He was succeeded by Rev. D. Rowe, who remained two years. Rev. A. Post, the next Pastor, officiated one year, followed by Rev. J. H. Howgate. In 1877 a frame building was erected and in 1880 was moved into Burrton. In 1884 there were 23 members on the rolls.  The Church closed in the 1950's. 

First Presbyterian Church

First Presbyterian Church was organized February 13, 1874 with 8 members, by Rev. R. M. Overstreet, who held service in Burrton early in October 1873.  The Church organized three miles east of Burrton in the Page schoolhouse. Rev. Overstreet remained as Pastor until May, 1877, when he was succeeded by Rev. J. T. Phillips, who ministered unto the Church until November, 1878. He was succeeded by Rev. D. Kingery.  Regular services were held in the new school house building in Burrton after it was completed. It is not known when the Church stopped meeting.
