CEDAR GROVE CHURCH
Cedar Grove 125 Years
In 1894 eleven members of the Price’s Creek Church of the Brethren living in the now Cedar Grove area, wanted to build a church in our current location. A grove of cedar trees in an adjoining lot influenced the name “Cedar Grove.” A 36’ x 46’ meeting house was erected and dedicated on July 29, 1894, with Henry Frantz in charge of the services.
One hundred twenty five years later on Saturday August 24, 2019, we will celebrate that anniversary with an Ice Cream and Pizza Social from 4:30 to 6:30 or until the food runs out! Bring your lawn chairs and an appetite. “Simply Sweet” owned by Dennis Delk and family will provide Homemade Ice Cream and Woodfired Pizzas.
The celebration continues the next day with soon to be 96 year old Miriam Moore contributing to the church service by playing with a family member an organ and piano duet. Your are invited to stay after the service for a carry-in lunch that will follow in the FLC. Meat and drinks will be provided so make plans to celebrate one hundred twenty five years of B.R.I.D.G.E. ing People to Christ.
The beautiful fellowship
found here is a result of generations of parents who have passed down their
love of God. Their sacrifices to God’s cause and love of the Lord have kept
this church vibrant and actively spreading God’s word. Many examples exist
throughout the years of this rural church’s generosity and support for the
community. With that being said, Cedar Grove is dealing with a trend that is
challenging most churches in the nation seeing a decline in charitable giving.
Our hope is with this anniversary that the membership of Cedar Grove has a renewed sense of the generosity needed to continue and maintain our rich heritage. Each one takes from this place a portion of God’s treasure. Our prayer for this church is it will continue to set an example, teach the Bible, and reach out to share an open invitation to God’s people everywhere as we continue our Mission at Cedar Grove to be B.R.I.D.G.E.ing People to Christ-likeness.
