  • 1898 – The first church, a frame structure was completed.

  • 1939 – Wind blew a tree down on the building and jarred the structure out of line.

  • 1956 – Another windstorm blew against the building making it unsafe. It was supported by poles for a few months while plans were made and adopted to build a new building. Services were held in the school house during the construction of the new building.

  • 1957 – On Mothers Day the new building was dedicated. The cost of the building was $7,430.17. The pews cost $1,866. The entire church debt at dedication was $400, the balance of the cost of the church pews.

  • 2003 – This was a year of many open doors. The church voted to begin phase one of the new church facility. On July 13, 2003, the church groundbreaking occurred. A plow with a rope attached was used. Each member there grasped the rope and pulled the plow which was held by our pastor. This signified the unity of the entire church working together under the leadership of God.
