In the summer of 1972, several families began to meet at the home of Bernie and Marion Draper for the purpose of organizing a Wesleyan Church in the Millerton area. On August 19, Pastor Harry Barrigar met with this group of people and accepted their request to serve as pastor and church planting director. The date of the first official service was September 24, 1972, which was held at the Millerton Fire Hall.
Plans were soon laid for the construction of a church building. Ground breaking was held in May and the construction began the first of June 1973 and then on October 7, 1973, the congregation moved in the far from finished Church Building.
Pastor Harry Barrigar, the pioneer pastor has been followed by a succession of four pastors.
Our Church, with a country setting also attracts people from the surrounding cities and villages. Our congregation is a unique blend of people from a variety of educational and social backgrounds and we are experiencing God’s blessing as “He” brings new people to worship and to serve Him.
