Our 2014 Reconciliation Offering on September 21 and 28 will go toward our Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church Project to preserve its historic building just six blocks from First Christian on North Street between Grant and Walnut. The First Christian Executive Board approved the Bethel AME Church Project and designated our 2014 Reconciliation Offering entirely to the project.
Bethel AME Project
Our church is undertaking a joint project with Bethel AME Church in Crawfordsville to repair and preserve the Bethel AME building. Freed slaves, who had escaped from Kentucky in 1834, formed the Bethel AME Church. Its congregation has worshipped on that North Street site since 1847, one of the oldest African-American congregations in the Wabash Valley.
The site is on the National Register of Historic Places because it was a station on the Underground Railroad. The congregation has a rich history and was home to the first elementary school for African-American children in Crawfordsville that at one time taught 124 students.
Our church Board has allocated $1,500 and our entire Reconciliation Offering this month to support this project.
The first phase of repairs will save the building from deterioration and preserve it as a center of worship. These repairs, which the small Bethel congregation has neither the funds nor the manpower to undertake, involve the roof, siding, paint, foundation, and basement. Rev. Mindy Mayes, minister of Bethel, said, “This project is an answer to our prayers.”
