-- Spring of 1872 brought Methodists living in the New Market area and the few members left of the Old Finley Chapel Church together to create the new organization called New market United Methodist Episcopal Church. Trustees were Joseph White, Levi Byrd, W.T. Hicks, William White, A.J. Shular, Joseph Witson and John White. Joseph White, their circuit rider preacher left the NorthWest corner of Scott Twp (downtown New Market, southeast side) to be used only for the purpose of building a worshipping place. Many conversions and changes later, the biggest undertaking was the two-story education center. That dedication did not take place until the Summer of 1965 with Rev. Walter Porter at the helm. Current minister is __________. I will get a picture soon
