Historical Marker

Oak Grove UMC is a church with a rich history.  The church was organized in 1880, with worship services and Sunday School held under trees and a brush arbor.  The building was built in 1881, by A.B. Harris.  The six-acre site, including the nearby cemetery, was donated by the Rev. William E. Bates (1812-83), retired circuit rider and minister.

Today, the church supports the community with:

  • Local food drives
  • School supplies
  • Provides socks and gloves to the local schools and donates funds for local and global missions.
  • Not only does the church keep in contact with the community but the church comes together for monthly potluck lunches, a great ladies group, group studies, and spirit-filled Sunday worship.
