This webpage will eventually include a listing of all the churches in Comanche County. If you'd like to have your church featured on this website, and can email me the text you'd like to have on the page featuring your church, I'll be happy to put the information online.

One of the expressions I recall my grandfather, Ernest Ferrin, using is "You have to do what you can with what's on hand". For that reason, the first page on a Comanche County, Ks, church to be added to this site is on the Wilmore Christian Church, to which my family belonged and which a few of my earliest memories concern, such as being at a service in the church and a "Sunday Potluck Picnic on the lawn beside the church one sunny afternoon.
