&nbsp;'''History of Oak Grove Methodist Church (Summer 2003 quarterly)'''  
  
1. Membership Roll of the First Baptist Church, 1917
+
Oak Grove Methodist Church was organized in October, 1871. The building was constructed from wood cut from the building site, which was donated by the late Levi Jolly. The church, situated on a knoll and surrounded by oak trees was given the name Oak Grove by one of its charter members, Mrs. Hayne Dodd. The first trustees were G.A. Fink, R.H. Dodd, William Brandon, J.C. Dodd and R.F. Jolly, Sr.

The church was first on the VanWert Circuit, which included some churches in Polk County, one of them being the Rockmart Church. In December 1887, Oak Grove was transferred to the Kingston Charge and so has remained. The other churches on the charge at the present time are Barnsley and Kingston. The Kingston Charge was in the Dalton District until July, 1962, when it was transferred to the Rome District.

The first pastor was the Rev. Joseph Carr. Several prominent ministers served the church in the early days. Oak Grove was the first pastorate of the Rev. Sam&nbsp;Jones. Others include the Rev. Gus Harris, father of the Rev. Pierce Harris, and the Rev. Edward Mackey.

6. Survey and Plat for FJ Mayson
+
On the same site, and again using native material, a rock church was constructed during the summer months by members and friends in the community with the help of only one rock mason.The church was financed by contributions of the members and friends for the sum of $715.00, most of which was used for material. The furnishings were also donations. The old seats, which were left standing on the floor after the tornado, were used until one year later when new pews were bought with funds from a benefit barbecue. The altar rail is the only piece of furniture that was salvaged from the wreckage and pieced together so that it is in use today.
  
7. Cass County&nbsp;Court Minutes, May Term 1855

On September 18, 1932 the new church was dedicated. The Rev. W.A. Simmons, a former pastor, delivered the dedicatory sermon. A great crowd attended. A basket dinner was served at noon.

Many individuals and families by word and deed have helped to make its history. Although the membership is small, the Faith of our Fathers presents a&nbsp;challenge to the present and future members. In so doing Oak Grove Methodist Church will continue to advance the cause of Christ. For who can tell what will be accomplished through even a few, who are fully dedicated to Him.&nbsp;

 History of Oak Grove Methodist Church (Summer 2003 quarterly)

Oak Grove Methodist Church was organized in October, 1871. The building was constructed from wood cut from the building site, which was donated by the late Levi Jolly. The church, situated on a knoll and surrounded by oak trees was given the name Oak Grove by one of its charter members, Mrs. Hayne Dodd. The first trustees were G.A. Fink, R.H. Dodd, William Brandon, J.C. Dodd and R.F. Jolly, Sr.

The church was first on the VanWert Circuit, which included some churches in Polk County, one of them being the Rockmart Church. In December 1887, Oak Grove was transferred to the Kingston Charge and so has remained. The other churches on the charge at the present time are Barnsley and Kingston. The Kingston Charge was in the Dalton District until July, 1962, when it was transferred to the Rome District.

The first pastor was the Rev. Joseph Carr. Several prominent ministers served the church in the early days. Oak Grove was the first pastorate of the Rev. Sam Jones. Others include the Rev. Gus Harris, father of the Rev. Pierce Harris, and the Rev. Edward Mackey.

Two members from the church have gone into the ministry. They are the Rev. Hubert Dodd and the Rev. Reynolds Groon, Sr. Both of them are retired at this writing.

The original building was completely destroyed on Marh 21, 1932 by a tornado which hit this section of Bartow County.

On the same site, and again using native material, a rock church was constructed during the summer months by members and friends in the community with the help of only one rock mason.The church was financed by contributions of the members and friends for the sum of $715.00, most of which was used for material. The furnishings were also donations. The old seats, which were left standing on the floor after the tornado, were used until one year later when new pews were bought with funds from a benefit barbecue. The altar rail is the only piece of furniture that was salvaged from the wreckage and pieced together so that it is in use today.

On September 18, 1932 the new church was dedicated. The Rev. W.A. Simmons, a former pastor, delivered the dedicatory sermon. A great crowd attended. A basket dinner was served at noon. A song service and informal talks in the afternoon concluded the program for the day. The pastor was the Rev. H.G. Garrett and the District Superintendent was the Rev. J.R. Turner. The Board of Stewards were Frank Jolly, C.W.Wade, Frank Brandon, Noel Jolly, R.L. Beardon and W.J. Fountain.

Since the new building was built, improvements have been made from time to time which include a red velvet kneeling pad, the addition of a steeple, painting the interior and exterior wood work, refinishing the floors, installing an accoustical tile ceiling, gas heat and most recently screens for windows and doors.

In the past several years additional gifts have been given to the church including hymn books and a bulletin board by the daughters of the late Mr. and Mrs. Dillard Sims. The bulletin board was erected in January 1965 and dedicated on Sunday, February 21, 1965. Dr. and Mrs. Hamilton S. Dixon gave a Hammond Spinet organ in November,1961.

Homecoming day was observed July 30, 1961. The Rev. Hubert Dodd, son of the late Sim and Irene Dodd, delivered the sermon. A large congregation was present. This was the first homecoming since the dedication of the new building in1932.

Oak Grove is one of the few Methodist churches which was established in Bartow County in the late 1800's which is still active. The present Board of Stewards and Trustees are Carl Dover, Frank Jolly, Neel Jolly, Odell Nally, E.L. Wade, Robert Jolly and C.W.Wade.

Many individuals and families by word and deed have helped to make its history. Although the membership is small, the Faith of our Fathers presents a challenge to the present and future members. In so doing Oak Grove Methodist Church will continue to advance the cause of Christ. For who can tell what will be accomplished through even a few, who are fully dedicated to Him.
