History of Sinking Springs United Methodist Church, Clinton TN

Sinking Springs UMC began as a camp-meeting ground sited about 2 ½ miles north of Clinton about the year 1811, on the road now known as Sinking Springs Road and ¼ mile from the present Church building. A spring which disappeared beneath the road and then came up again on the other side gave the Church its name.

Camp-meetings were a feature of great revivals in the early part of the nineteenth century. One account tells us: “Camp-meetings were held in the fall. Many people came, and some of the wealthier ones-built cabins to live in while they were there. Most of the people brought food provisions, including a cow; special places were made in the spring to keep the milk cool. The methods of transportation were various . . . The meetings lasted for two weeks but sometimes they continued longer.

Traditions tells us the Church was organized about 1840. On November 27, 1848, a deed for property belonging to the McAdoo family was drawn “to the Trustees of Samuel Dunn, James Kirkpatrick, William Dale, Benjamin P. Hackney, Samuel Moore, E.C. Edwards, John Severs and Phillip Seiber, for 1 ½ acres, for the sole purpose of establishing and building a campground . . . for the use of the Methodist Episcopal Church, forever so long as the said church wishes to use the said land for such and no longer – – with the further privilege of free access to the spring for use of the congregation.

Our record of pastors begins in 1871 when Rev. Robert A. Hutsell was pastor of the Clinton Circuit. In 1880 the Church became part of the Andersonville Circuit and Rev. Jacob R. Payne was appointed pastor. This relationship continued for the next 68 years except for brief periods when the alignment was in conjunction with other circuits in this part of country. In 1957 Sinking Springs and Norris were brought together as a two-point charge. In 1964 Sinking Springs, Moore’s Gap, and Heiskell formed a circuit, but the linkage with Norris as part of a two-point situation was resumed in 1969 and that continues today.

Early leaders included W.A. Wallace, James R. Ray, S.D. Leinart, John Allen, J.B. Carden, W.H. McAdoo, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Leonhardt, and Miss Lizzie Kirkpatrick.

The congregation occupied a one-room school very near the present location when its lay membership was led by J.C. Wallace, George and Ernest Taylor. A parcel of land was deeded to the system by Henry Irwin and in 1914, when Rev. William L. Dykes was pastor, after a cyclone had damaged a building used both by our Church and for a school, it was purchased from the County for $300 for church purposes. Two classrooms were added in 1940.

When the unification of Methodist denominations occurred in 1939, Moore’s Gap joined with Sinking Springs the following year so that former northern and southern branches were indeed one. In 1948 a five-room parsonage was built near the Church while Rev. E.L. McConnell was the pastor.

The power of Christian prayer Learn to know Christ
Learn to know Christ and him crucified. Learn to sing to him, and say, Lord Jesus, you are my righteousness, I am your sin. You have taken upon yourself what is mine and given me what is yours. You have become what you were not so that I might become what I was not.
