Our Beginnings
On the first page of the old church record book we read  ". . . September 1832, the Christian Church established at Bethlehem meeting house." On the same page are thirty (30) names of the first members of the church: *

Boston Iseley, James Melvin, Priscilla Allen, Tobias Waynick, Catherine Melvin, Cornelia Dickey, Rachel Iseley, Susannah Waynick, Sara Ireland, Lewis Iseley, Michael Tickle, Elizabeth Brown, Mary Iseley, Henry Coleman, Lavina Love, Elizabeth Ireland, Mary Colemen, Tayton Brown, Christian Iseley, Sarah Dickey, Andrew Hughes, Alfred Iseley, Rhonda Dickey, Sarah Hughes, Jane Iseley, Tilman Ireland, Eli Iseley, Mary Gerringer, Mary Hughes and Lewis Melvin.

Bethlehem Church was first started by a man named Vance Lafferty. He cut the logs and, with the help of friends and neighbors, put up the meeting house.
* According to the papers of Reverend J. W. Holt
