Indian Creek Primitive Baptist was constituted in 1895.
On 20 September 1908, Florence Hartsfield deeded a tract of land to the local trustees of the Methodist church, O. C. Bell, C. J. Smith and J. L. Hartsfield. The church was constructed soon thereafter and the first pastor was Rev. C. A. Norton.
Note the similarity between this church and Funston United Methodist. They must have been built by the same contractor, likely a local builder.
In 1900, a small group of Methodists began meeting at Union schoolhouse in Funston. A church was erected in 1905 and served until the construction of the present structure in 1950.
This Space Age chapel is the focal point of the Mr. & Mrs. Warren T. Baker Center, a multipurpose facility built in the last decade of the Norman College era. I hope to learn the identity of the architect. It was a very progressive design for a small Baptist college in South Georgia, or anywhere for that matter.
Norman Park (known as Obe until its incorporation in 1902) was home to an early Methodist congregation known as Old Shiloh. Norman Park Methodist was an outgrowth of Old Shiloh and was built with timbers cut by members on land donated by Mr. & Mrs. R. L. Norman.
This was originally known simply as Norman Park Baptist Church. For more about services and activities, visit their Facebook page.
