But today it has a mem- bership of 90, and has a full complement of elders and deacons to give the church guidance. Charged with tile pastoral oversight of the congrega- tion are Luther Ellis, John R. Bailey and Joy W. Braak, the elders. The deacons for the autonomous local con- gregation are Linder Ray Cliver, Carl Purselley, Dwain Purselley and Jim Morton. Serving the local church as evangelist is O.T. Denman. Early members of the congregation were Johnnie Mac Jackson and Mrs. Grace Henderson. After meeting for some time in a building used for other purposes on weekdays, the congregation later built a small building on the site where the church now stands. The church had elders and deacons in the 1940s, and at that time had a membership of between 48 and 50. In more recent years the church was without elders until April 27 of 1976, when new elders and deacons were installed. The present building, which seats some 250 per- sons, was built three and a half years ago. The present membership is now about 90, and atten- dance ranges upwards to 168. The church provides Bible classes for all ages. Bible Class is at 10 a.m. each Sunday with worship ser- vices at 11. Sunday night services are at 6 and Wed- nesday night services are at 7.
