  "Plainville Baptist Church": Singing at The Grange

In 1990 or 1991, The Plainville Baptist Church leaders transported their choir to The Grange to do a performance. The "Plainville Baptist Church" choir was (and continues to be) directed by Dan Laramore. [His wife, Jan, is also on the faculty of Grace Baptist Christian Academy.] (1)

I do not recall the precise location or name of this Grange. At the time Gary and I (who were members of the choir) were not aware the Grange had anything to do with the occult. We never questioned anything they did and trusted them implicitly. We should not have blindly trust them. The Bible says to "prove what is acceptable to the Lord."

The Grange is a Masonic-like fraternal order, an organization "whose members are usually bound by oath and who make extensive use of secret ritual in the conduct of their meetings":

"The Grange, like the Masons, Odd Fellows, Elks and Moose, is a fraternal organization. One distinctive feature of fraternal orders is their emphasis upon traditional procedures for conducting their meetings. These procedures, often called rituals, employ members who have specific parts to play in opening and closing ceremonies. The Grange, like other fraternities, has levels or "degrees" of membership and a member advances from one level to the next by participating in or observing the rituals for that level."

Quoted from http://www.boonecountyfair.com/grange.htm

"When the Grange first began in 1867, it borrowed some of its rituals and symbols from Freemasonry, including secret meetings, oaths and special passwords."

Some Grange degrees correspond to the great mother goddess worshipped in witchcraft:

The Grange is formally known as "The Order of the Patrons of Husbandry." Openly, it seems a relatively harmless organization like the Farmers Co-op. However, beyond the basic membership level there are higher levels where you must swear oaths and partake in secret rituals.

That alone should be a problem for Christians (cf. Matt. 5:34-37). However, it is actually quite a pagan organization. The higher degrees (5th-7th) are named after the pagan goddesses Pomona, Flora and Demeter. The four lower degrees correspond to the four faces of the great mother goddess and she is worshipped in witchcraft.

The Grange's highest degree represents a festival in honor of a bloodthirsty Greek "goddess" (demon):

Grange material states that the highest (National) degree "…represents a harvest festival in honor of Demeter, Greek goddess of agriculture and fertility." While that is intriguingly vague, things get more specific elsewhere. In an historic work on the early years of the Grange, we learn much more. We will see that this "harvest festival" is actually one of the most horrific ceremonies of witchcraft.
