Inscription. The church was established in 1878 by Methodists from Brookstown and Sharon. The chief founder, Augustus Eugene Conrad, made plans for the first church, a one room building, and it was dedicated in 1882. It was replaced with a three-story brick building in 1931 during a severe depression. That year was considered a high point in the congregation's dedication and faith in God. A second sanctuary was dedicated in 1989. A second fellowship hall was built in 2001.
