History of the church

It was more than 130 years ago that a wonderful group of dedicated men and women, led by the Holy Spirit, formed a church.

Research shows that a church was organized sometime before a building was erected and this gives a belief that the services were held in homes, or at the Methodist Church, which is no longer in existence. The deed to the present property is dated December 28, 1895. The property was purchased from Mrs. E. Sykes for the sum of one dollar and other considerations.

The old building was torn down in 1937 and the building now used for our Sunday School was erected. The spring and summer of 1983 were busy times for the men as they built a new fellowship hall, which was dedicated on August 7, 1983.

On December 7, 1986, the church was dedicated and a special event took place on October 30, 1988 with a note-burning service for a debt-free congregation.

The congregation of today would like to think that we are much like that same truly wonderful group of dedicated men and women of over 100 years ago, and that we are led by the Holy Spirit to worship and praise our Lord in this place.

 

"I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth."
