History

     First organized in 1873, in a school house, this church erected its first building, a white, wooden structure, in 1876.  Its first known pastor, in 1902, was Rev. G. W. Thomas.  In 1908, the cornerstone was laid for the present brick structure.  Its art glass windows are original.  An organ was installed in 1947, a new parsonage built in 1957, and a fellowship hall added in the mid-sixties.  The church was named "Rural Charge of the Year" in 1957-1958.  In 1978, there were 20 members who had been members for fifty or more years.
