Transcribed from Church Records:
Aug. 3, 1948 - A Special meeting of the quarterly conference was called to discuss the
building of a church to replace the structure destroyed by fire on Nov. 5, 1945
Aug. 23, 1948 - Rev. Orin L. Carroll was appointed chairman of the Building Committee
to replace Henry Wilson.
Aug. 31 - Sep. 3, 1948 - Purchase of the Free Methodist Church building was
completed.  This will be used as our interim church home while building our new church.
July 3-17, 1949 - Financial crusade, under the direction of the Rev. Albert S. Adams,
for the funds to build the new church.  $35, 618.34 raised.
Sep. 26, 1949 - Construction of the new building was commenced.
Oct. 30, 1949 - Cornerstone of new church was laid by the District Superintendent and
Charles E. Ballinger.  Ellis Minyon?, former pastor, was the speaker.
Apr. 2, 1950 - (Palm Sunday) The new church was dedicated by Bishop W. Ledden, assisted by Rev. Charles E. Ballinger, district superintendent and the pastor, Orin J. Carroll.
Feb. 28th, 1954 - Rev. Charles E. Ballinger confirmed a class of new members,
25 in all - 20 of them on profession of faith.

It appears that the early church records were destroyed by the fire of 1945, as the records provided to me are only since then.  Because they are recent, I only copied deaths.
