Mt Carmel UMC - South Central


There are conflicting stories about the exact beginning of this church. One account from a Photostat copy shows a quarterly conference was held on September 6, 1837, with W. G. Parks. The other account says that the oldest record of Mt. Carmel states a quarterly meeting was held on September 6, 1851. When the wooden building was replaced by a brick building in 1964, the original pulpit furnishings were used and also the lectern and altar rail made by James Clements (1805-1898). This church was the first church on the Jacksonville Charge to organize a Woman's Society of Christian Service, May 22, 1940.
