Culled from several Newspapers:
Racine Bible's history dates to 1912 when a group of nineteen men began meeting for a weekly Bible study. The first major developmental step occurred in 1927 when this group built the Union Tabernacle on Center Street in Racine. A. H. Stewart, called as the first pastor in 1931, served for ten years. In these initial years, the Union Tabernacle was known throughout the city and surrounding areas as the primary preaching place in Racine. The era’s popular radio teachers regularly took the train up from Chicago, or down from Milwaukee, to preach in Racine at the Union Tabernacle. H. A. Ironside, A. C. Gaebelein, Donald Barnhouse, William R. Newell, and Lewis S. Chafer are some of the expositors who preached here in those days.
Dr. Alexander H. Stewart, 87, the first resident pastor of the Union Tabernacle which later became the Racine Bible Church, died Tuesday (Jan. 20th, 1970) at his home at 1842 Taylor Ave. Racine, Wisconsin. A native of Scotland, Dr. Stewart came to Racine from Newfoundland and Nova Scotia in 1931 and was Tabernacle pastor from 1931 until 1941. He served on the staff of the Extension Department of Chicago's Moody Bible institute, traveled throughout the United States and Canada as a Bible teacher and authored several pamphlets and books. He received an honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity from Bob Jones University, Greenville, S.C., in 1957. Funeral services will be held in the Racine Bible Church, Friday afternoon, with a son, the Rev. Samuel Stewart, assisting as officiant.
