In 1870, a group of thirty Methodists organized a church which first met in a brush arbor in Wilkinson County. In 1872, they erected a wooden building which had a wooden partition down the center pews. On July 12, 1879, John Chapman gave acres of land for the church, declaring in the deed that he did so "for and in consideration of the love I bear for the cause of Christ and from an earnest desire to promote his heritage on earth." The earliest recorded pastor was Rev. Bascom Sentell in 1883. The current building was renovated in 1977.
