History of Moorefield Christian Church, Moorefield KY

Moorefield, a village situated in the eastern section of Nicholas County, surrounded by rolling hills and rich with fertile soil, has since it’s first settlement been a prosperous and progressive community. There were not any school buildings in the village, until after the Civil War 1860-65, when a building was paid for by popular subscription, and located opposite where the Christian Church now stands.

1876–Soon after the building of the schoolhouse, a Sunday School was organized to meet in the school building on Sunday afternoons. Occasionally services were held there and from time to time protracted meetings, the most outstanding one by Elder L. H. Reynolds of Bourbon County. A Large number of confessions resulted of whom the greater part placed their membership with the church at Bethel and some at Mt. Zion and others at East Union. Following this there was a desire, often expressed publicly, to form a congregation and build a Christian Church in Moorefield.

1885–J. M. Hopkins and L. N. Templeman were added as deacons.

1887–In early Spring there was held a meeting of those who were interested and a committee appointed to raise the funds. C. S. (Uncle Cole) Templeman headed this committee, giving almost his entire time. Within six months the necessary funds were given and the building was erected. Robert Templeman was a consecrated worker to the cause, giving of his time and efforts by hauling the rock and laying the foundation. Lumber for the building came from the old Myers Stations lumber mill. Large rock that form the wall in the yard along the road were hauled by horses and wagons from Flat Creek where it ran through the farm of Jim Denton. The land on which the church was built was given by W. H. Howe and wife, Mollie F. Howe, on November 7 of that same year to the trustees, L. N. Templeman and W. H. Howe. The Moorefield Christian Church was formally organized on Saturday, November 12, at a meeting held in the completed building. The Dedication, held on the following day, Sunday November 13, was free of debt. The dedication sermon was preached by G. W. Yancy, pastor at Lancaster, Kentucky, and followed by a speech by C. S. Templeman Brother Yancy continued preaching for ten or twelve days. There were twenty-two confessions, making a congregation of ninety-five members. The first pastor called was J.B. Greenwade, of Montgomery County, who continued as pastor for four years.

1889–In November, there was a funeral and wedding in the church on the same day, the funeral being that of a child of the pastor, J. B. Greenwade at 10:00 a.m., and the wedding of Miss Anna B. Talbert and J. M. Hopkins at 2:30 p.m. The formal ordination service was held for the afore named officer with the addition of W. W. Berry and Charles McVey.

1900–A strong missionary society was formed called the Christian Women’s Board of Missions.

1901–W. E. Crabtree succeeded Greenwade. The first wedding solemnized in the building was that of Miss Retta Talbert and Dr. W. D. Howe, the ceremony being performed by Brother C. T. Edmonds. The first funeral was that of Mrs. Elizabeth Hopkins, mother of S. W. Hopkins.

1902–In October, in an ordination service conducted by J. F. Hawkins and George Farley, W. H. Howe and James W. Berry were chosen as elders, and J. D. Owings, Walter Wilson, D.D. Thompson, W. F. Dillon and Herdy Myers were deacons.

1907–After considerable discussion it was decided to install an organ, later being replaced by a piano. After J. W. Berry retired, no other song leader was available.

1911–There were no further changes in the personnel of the board until when W. T. Stone, John M. Ratliff, Minor Judge and George Perkins were ordained by elders Bela Metcalf and R. R. Templeman.

1948–In the Fall, Reverend Rhodes Thompson of the Paris Christian Church conducted a revival which added thirty-two new members. The church sponsored the organization fo a Boy Scout Troop in Moorefield. There were twenty-two charter members under the leadership of Bill Sims. A Christian Youth Fellowship (CYF) group was also started during this year. Mrs. Ruth Blount sponsored this group which met each preaching Sunday before evening services.

1949–Badly needed repairs to the church building were made. Hanson Judge, chairman of the board, was commended for directing the redecoration work. On September 4, Homecoming services were first held during the ministry of Reverend Ben C. Hobgood. Following Sunday School and regular morning worship services delivered by Dr. Riley B. Montgomery, president of the College of the Bible in Lexington, a basket lunch was served at the school house. Special services dedicating the redecorated church sanctuary were held in the afternoon. The message was delivered by Reverend John Chenault, minister of the Mt Sterling Christian Church. Newell Hobgood, father of our minister, provided special singing.

1962–Almost 75 years after the Moorefield Christian Church was formally organized, a new educational building (Sunday School rooms) was added. Most of the construction was done by volunteer labor under the supervision of T. W. Bailey. Joe Blount, Jimmy Judge, and Jack Becker were three young men who did much of the finishing work. Other improvements included a new furnace to heat the entire building, permitting the removal of stoves from the sanctuary. The pulpit wall was repaired and a new ceiling was added. On May 6, special services were held to dedicate the new Sunday School rooms and improvements. The sermon was delivered by Dr. B. Franklin Lewis, a former minister, then professor at Transylvania College in Lexington. On November 11, seventy-fifth anniversary services were held and conducted by Larry L. Miracle who was our minister since 1960.

1964–During this year the old doors were removed from the front of the church and new ones were put in there place. The fence was removed from the front of the church lot and the entire lot was rocked and paved. The church was painted by members and the sign, which is present now, was placed over the front door.

1965–The church hooked into the new water line that was brought through Moorefield from Sharpsburg.
