History of the Potterville United Methodist Church. Taken from a book written by Pat Walsh
"The early christians were ministered to by men who were known as circut riders. This was the beginning of sharing the Word of God with fellow christians. It was soon established that a house of worship was greatly needed. "if God be for us who can be against us?"--This was the text of the sermon presented by Rev. Knapp who was the first minister sent by the conference. With the aid of the official board, who pushed the completion of the church building, this Methodist church was dedicated on February 3, 1878.
The church bell was purchased in Battle Creek for a cost of two hundred sixteen dollards by an official committee representing the church. Perhaps it should be rung often as in those early days, to remind man of the seventh day. The day set apart for man to rest from his labors. a day of prayer and thanksgiving.
The church in the pure English Gothic style was designed by Mr Sloan of Philadelphia, PA. What majestic beauty with its stained glass windows and ornate walnut beams!"
