Booneville Church Rebuilt After 1954 Fire




One year ago, February 28, 1954 the Booneville Methodist Church was struck by lightning and destroyed by fire, it was truly a sad experience losing a church that was only built in 1948, but today things look different for the congregation.  On January 2nd they reopened their new church which everyone is proud of.  This was made possible by the faithful and loyal members of church, the citizens of Booneville and Board of Missions.


The church is now completed except for a few minor things.  It has grown in attendance and offerings and in many ways during the last four years.


Hickman Patrick is the very capable Sunday School Supt. and the Sunday School continues to grow.


Treasurer is Miss Estelle Campbell and District Supt. is Dr. M. P. McClure who played an important part in rebuilding the church, also the very efficient building committee, D. W. Barrett, Walker D. Wilson and Hickman Patrick.


A cordial invitation is extended the public to come and visit the church and worship with us.  Sunday School at 10: 00 a.m. and worship service 1st and 3rd Sundays at 11:00 a.m.  Evening services every Sunday night.


J. H. Burton, pastor, is now serving his fourth year, having been appointed to the Booneville church in 1951.
