Inscription.  Loafer’s Glory Apostolic Church was organized in 1908 after Wesleyan Holiness preacher George Sutton conducted a revival at Loafer’s Glory School on Wilson Atwood’s farm. Beginning in 1909, evangelist Fred Lohmann served as minister and conducted tent revivals that drew hundreds of people. A small frame sanctuary was erected about 1910 on land donated by Jim Moore, who led the congregation until his death in 1917. Many ministers and missionaries originated from Loafer’s Glory Church, which continued services under several leaders until 1930.
