The first church was built here in 1910, on land donated by Farquar Adams. It was destroyed by high winds in 1915 and the congregation met in the local schoolhouse until the present building was constructed in 1925.

    Seeing this church brings back what most would think sad memories of the first funeral service I ever attended. It was for my grandfather ( Pa) Pete Meldrim Conner but it doesn’t it gives me a sense of home. Though I myself never lived in Charlotte I can’t remember once when traveling with my family us just passing by its location without my father John Horace Conner pointing out what once was he described it with such vigor that i felt his joy, sadness and longing for that area that it instilled in me a sense of home. Which is what we always referred our countless visits to this area. It was always we going home to visit! Our family having moved when I was just an infant in 1971 to Moultrie Ga. Dad would tell of the depot and other homesteads their and the old school house where the men what had upset there women would stay so they partake without to much conflict. The first television that everyone had go see even if he could only catch a glimpse of through the window cause their was not room left inside. I may be just getting old but I do wonder if my kids feel the importance of this place that I never lived even near but still call home? It is more than just a spot on map it is where my roots are it is my forever HOME ! THANK YOU DADDY for caring enough to try over and over to tell a car load of mean a$# boys where we came from.

    Although the congregation has dwendled substantially over the years, this church still holds services every week. Inside was updated sometime in the 70’s ( judging by decor). I loved coming to church here as a child because of the hymnals that had “shape notes” in them.

    Pristine, simple and beautiful. The fence adds to the character. It is always nice to see a congregation preserve their heritage instead of “modernizing” by building an ugly ill proportioned brick “colonial” monstrosity beside the white clapboard original. Guess I should be thankful if they don’t tear down the original.
