4. About the Ministry:
Here is a brief paragraph (120 words) describing the church or ministry to be served (size, demographics, year started, etc.).
Two small, rural churches, one established in 1821, each with 7-10 regular attendees. They are composed of mostly older members and some middle-aged members in the community but not now attending. There is a possibility that the two churches could be yoked together as they were at one time until 1977.
