First Church of the Nazarene

-- The tent service which launched the First Church of the Nazarene took place in June of 1920 under the leadership of the McHenrys, bringing forth 34 charter members. Rev. Mertie Hooker was the first minister. First holding services in the mission hall at 310 N. Grant Avenue, the group bought the Presbyterian Church on the corner of Pike & Water Street where they worshipped until 1931. Under the guidance of Rev. Grant Barton, with $1.41 starting the project, the group purchased a lot and began the long provess to build a church. Dedication took place more than 7 years later. In 1957, the home next door was bought to use for educational purposes. The church still thrives today.

Currently at:  NOTE: I believe this church has moved to new facilities and changed it's name.
