From the historic marker erected in 2000:
This church was constituted and its first sanctuary built in 1888 on “Love’s Old Field”, land donated by G. M. Love. Charter members were the J. J. Kicklighters, the Dennis Lynns, Allen Lynn, and D. B. Smith, the church’s first clerk. Elders on the constituting presbytery were H. B. Wilkerson, Bazil Jones, and M. F. Stubbs, the first pastor. In 1896 the church was one of seven organizing members of the Bethel Primitive Baptist Association. J. Walter Hendricks, pastor from 1932-43, became the first president of Birdwood College, now Thomas College, in Thomasville. This c. 1930 sanctuary was remodeled in the 1960s.
George M. Love (25 December 1823 – 4 May 1907)
Charity M. Love (26 May 1830 – 27 May 1886)
George M. Love gave the land on which the church and cemetery are located.

Thanks for making Vanishing South Georgia a useful guide to the local culture that connects us all. The memories you share are helping to create a digital record of our region that will be useful to researchers and those with roots here well into the future. It’s as important as the artist who painted the “Local Culture” chair or the farmer who grew the organic peaches. If we’re not connected by our communities, we’re not connected.

If you can, buy local organic peaches. Since my grandfather was a commercial peach grower, I understand that pest controls are necessary, but some of Georgia’s largest growers use more chemicals than you’d care to imagine on your peaches. Just look for and request this option if you can.
