With a choir of two and a congregation of five, the very survival of this little church is an inspiration. Built in 1844, it’s truly one of the most historic rural church buildings in South Georgia. I can only imagine the challenges faced by the Wiregrass pioneers who cleared longleaf pine and palmetto thickets to raise this chapel. Many of those men and women are buried in the adjoining cemetery. The congregation built a social hall behind the old church a few years ago and obviously take great pride in this special place.
I hope the United Methodist Church will work to further secure the site, as the congregation ages and grows smaller in number.
