Methodist Church, Kerens, Texas

Notes:

  • "In 1885, Reverend John S. Davis held a revival meeting under a brush arbor on a little creek west of Kerens, Texas, and a Methodist Church of about 40 members was organized.   In 1891, Reverend N. A. Keene was appointed to this Church, and in 1892, the First Methodist Church was built under his ministry.   In 1929, under the ministry of Reverend Paul Evans, our present beautiful brick house of worship was organized." Inscribed on a "Kerens Methodist Church Picture Plate"....  Submitted by Jean W. Gibbons, 1/20/2005

Notes:

  • My grandparents lived across the street from that church and my grandfather was the carpenter that built it.  Also I was baptized in that church and my father's funeral was held there.  I actually have one of the windows from it.  This building was torn down when the present Methodist Church Building was constructed.
