In The Beginning

Elias Kuykendall was the song leader for many years. Before the church had hymn books, he would lead the old favorite hymns from memory. The first musical instrument the church owned was a pump organ which the used for several years. The church supported itself by everything from pie suppers to planting cotton crops. At the pie suppers the girls brought the pies and the boys were told to bring plenty of money. The money was then put into the church treasury. The church planted cotton crops several times to raise money for expenses. In 1935 the church paid for a piano this way. The participated in a program called "God's Acre Plan" where the money received from the sale of cotton was given to mission work. They then picked over the cotton and got enough to pay for a piano.
