“Oak Grove Methodist Church is actually much older but this will be the 50th year for a home coming celebration,” Huggins-Davis said.

The Rev. Jon Drisko is the present minister. He was recently ordained at the Global Methodist Church Conference in Niceville, Florida.

The Rev. Joel Warren will be the guest speaker at Oak Grove’s 50th Homecoming.

Oak Grove Methodist, a small wooden structure, is nestled among majestic oaks along a quiet country road.

The church sits on one-and-a half acres and was deeded in 1885, by Evan Lee and Charlotte E. Lee (Donald Lee).  The church sanctuary was constructed shortly after. Records show the church was destroyed by a tornado but rebuilt by local folks.

Everyone with a history or interest in historic Oak Grove Methodist Church is invited to attend.
