Inscription. In memory of Rebecca Randall Bryan. “On March 22, 1856, Thomas Randall conveyed to Abraham W. Bessent and John S. Thomas, trustees of the Baptist Church, this plot of ground, with title to exist for so long as it continued a location of the Baptist Church, with a sufficiency of time to rebuild or repair from age, fire, or storm. It is not known what the fate of the Baptist Church was, but it is known that on October 25, 1892, Martha E. Bryan, Thomas Randallís daughter, deeded a lot on which a church is to be erected to the trustees of Little River Methodist Episcopal Church, South. This white wooden church, which so long served the congregation of the Methodists of Little River as their house of worship, was moved from its corner location to a lot beyond the cemetery on the west. A handsome new brick church now stands on a lot adjoining the cemetery on the north, on a tract of land deeded to the church trustees January 30, 1943, by Nelle Miles Bryan a great-granddaughter of Thomas Randall and a granddaughter of Martha E. Bryan.”

Also see . . .  Little River United Methodist Church History. “Little River Methodist Church started as a mission in 1876, and became a Methodist church in 1885. It was a circuit church, one where the pastor served other churches on the same charge. The charge lines changed several times over the years. This continued until 1985 when Rev. Frank Hartsell became pastor and served the three churches remaining in the Little River Charge (Little River, Wampee, and Ebenezer) every Sunday for one more year.

Thomas Randall in 1856. This church seems to have died out during the Civil War and the site was later granted to the Methodists.

In 1968, the churchís name changed from Little River Methodist Church to Little River United Methodist Church as a result of the Methodist Church merging with the Evangelical United Brethren Church.

“In June 1986, Wampee and Ebenezer were removed from the Little River Charge, and Little River United Methodist Church became a station church, self-supporting with a full time pastor.” (Submitted on March 7, 2009.)
