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.
“Our church site here was first a Baptist Church granted to the Baptist Trustees by Thomas Randall in 1856.
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.)
