The Centennial of Our Church

Category: Church History, Fun & Fellowship, Official Business

More than 100 years ago, a small but dedicated group of Christians were meeting on Center Street in Flora. As time passed, they outgrew their building. So on April 6, 1914, at 7 in the morning a large number of the church’s members gathered at the current  location. They sang songs, prayed and several people were brought to tears. Several charter members were present and joined others in bring somewhat sad that the old building was going to be replaced, but rejoiced in the images of a new church in which all could worship. On April 14th a contract was signed between the building committee and W. H. Turner for a new building, and work began immediately. On June 18 of that year, the cornerstone was laid, and on November 29, 1914 the new building was dedicated. It took only 6 months to complete, and has stood strong even since.

This year, 2014, is the Centennial Celebration of our building and there will be lots to do and lots to remember when the year comes to a close. Some of the plans include:

  • An updated history
  • Displays in the old library
  • An Organ Concert on June 22
  • A Special Day of Celebration on November 16
  • Church dinners on both June 22 and November 16
  • Erection and dedication of a new church sign
  • A time capsule
  • Group pictures
  • Visits from previous Pastors

You will be a part of this celebration. And you will make it a big celebration. If you have stories to share, or photos or other artifacts, please let Tom Helvie, chair of the Centennial Committee know. And if you have any ideas as to what should go in the time capsule, let Doug Winger know as he is in charge of this event. We have a lot to look forward to and celebrate this year.

CENTENNIAL COMMITTEE MEMBERS

Tom Helvie, chair; Pat Meade, Jennifer Archibald, Miriam Robeson, Nancy Hicks, Barry Wheeler, Angela Denmark, Janalie Robeson, Doug and Vicki Winger
