"A church now and forever" on Little Creek

Attendance was four on Sunday

Faithful believers posted message on wall years ago

Church is maintained, pristine housekeeping

The well-kept Little Creek Community Church had four people in attendance Sunday, far removed from the early days in the early 1900s when there was standing room only.

The church has never closed its doors, with the original deed saying the property was to "be used as a church now and forever."

Its presence recalls the lives and times of a large number of families that lived on the creek from Creston to Ace Haney Hill, where the one room Beulah Hill School once stood.
