The origins of this church can be traced to the Spring Creek Mission, organized in 1867. A crude log building served as the first church.  In 1871, the congregation adopted the name of Mt. Zion and a second structure of frame construction was built. The third and present building dates to 1901.

    Beautiful country church, Brian. A year or so ago, the Georgia EMC magazine ran an article on several folks who were working to restore older churches, and put them back into action, again. You might be a good fit in such reclamation work!
