Beth Eden Lutheran church is the

having been organized in the}
ar/1843, when the venerable synod
elf, now 08 years old, was then
ly 10 years. Beth Eden's house of
>rship was erected the year of her
ganization and also dedicated the
me year. This house is located
out rive and one-half miles almost
ectly north of Newberry, in sight
the new Appalachian highway in
? m:d?t of a beautiful grove of i
ge and stately oaks. This edifice
3ugh later enlarged, is s:;'l the ornal
building, which makes it the
building in the county. St. Paul's.

Beth Eden's first pastor, and her
janfzer, was the Rev. G. H. Browr
o had been placed the year before t
Liberty Hill, now St. Ja*mes, Jal- i,
but then several miles furthei '
:th on the Newberry and Lauren? <
mty line Pastor Brown was here ;
ced by the synod, not only to be
pastor of this congregation, but \
be the missionary of all the othe: rherans
jn this pari of the county ?
the time without' a pastor. Tc f
w hew true he was to the work 1
imitted to his hands, the record -
s, "In his exploration, he fount
the neighborhood where Beth Ed- t
now stands, several Lutheran faies
anxious to worship Gcd acding
to the faith and customs of
ir forefathers. And though few J
number and in only moderate c*t
ustances, they were willing to un- ? '
take the erection of a house of :
rship. In a short time the church
5 completed at a cost of six hun- ^
d dollars, a congregation organiz- d
and the house was dedicated to service
of God on the 2nd Sun
j of September, 1843. Revs. G. H. :
)wn, John C. Hope, and Hermar.
11 officiated at the dedication."
rhe following heads with their
nilies were received in the ccn;jr?
;ion as charier members: Messrs
orge A. Sligh, John Sligh, Hcnr
Rikard, Nicholas Summer, Walter i
Houseal, William Werts, Joseph
ker, Jacob Baker, Jacob Barr, anr*
ob Erilow. Of these Messrs. HenW.
R!kard, Jacob Barr and Jacol .
ker were elected the first elders:
.i it might be of interest tc kr.ov
. Rikard was ever after this reeled
to this high p:ace of service t
d honor t*11 his death in 1894 whici
s a period of 51 years. v
Fastor Brown served the church
:y acceptr';Iy on an annual salar:
$100 till the year 1845 when h:
s sent in the fall by the synod to
:ome the first missionary to Luth
ms in state of Mississippi.
William Berly was called as the
d pastor, and faithfully served the
ngrcgalion once each month dur;
the year 1845. While the salary
this man of God and Christian edator
is not recorded, it is not likely
was less than $100. And yet whaler
the amount, he gave it all to the
ngregation tc liquidate the debt of
eir building. It is to be remember*
' -i - : j
tnat it was ne wno or^a:iiz.c?i vuiy
church and served it the first
o years without any financial comnsation,
and three years on a salaof
$-10 per year. Veritably a Lucran
father that should never be
rgottcn by the conference and syd!
Paster Berly's successor, and the
ird paster, was the Rev. E. A.
>lles. During his pastorate the old
irsor.age was erected within a
ohe's throw south of the church, at
cost of six hundred dollars. Thi>
use served as the home of all the
gularly called pastors from Bolles
Pastor Julian in 1S&1 and was finit
hv in or about the
ly UVw^lri vjr vv* viT ~
ar 1908. 'Pastor Bolles served the
mgregation the year 1S47 and part
' IS but became much discouraged
id abruptly resigned, and left the
lurch in a rather depressed condion.
As a supply for the remaining
onths, the Rev. Mr. Fink, whose
hristian name is not given, served
> the -1th pastor.
The Rev. Jacob B. Anthony was
illed as the 5th pastor and served
run 1 SiO-51. It was he who organ
.eel the Sunday school of the con-j
relation. During: his pastorate a j
ery heavy drain Was made on the
ongrcgation by many of its members

lion, though imu-h uep!\s<eu ar. 1
discoui aged, >lhl strongly trusted in
the Head of the Church with a faith
that His guiding hand would steer ;
them through all their problems and j
trials. Xor was their faith in vain, j
In 11)51 through the hand of God the i
Rev. S'anmore R. Sheppard was call- J
cd to be the <>th pastor and in every
respect proved to be the man for the j
dark hour. Humble, zealot's, cor.se- j
crated and gifted, he took charge
with the sole ebjeel of making men
Christians, often stating that if this i
is done the church wii) thrive and the j
membership grow. Xor was he mis- j
taken, for he soon brought on a glo- j
rious revival of religion which resulted
in a golden harvest of good and
substantial members. It is said he
through his influence 2nd example
first- impressed young J. A. Sligh and
John D. Bowles with the thought of
studying for the ministry. But this
greatly beloved pastor was only ao
stay with the congregation for one j
year. In the fail of the year, like j
his worthy predecessor, pastor
Brown, he. too, heard an unmistakable
call to go and serve the scattered
Lutherans of the great state of
Mississippi. His people begged, plead
and offered him any salary he might
state to remain, but to no avail. He
obeyed the call, went, and we are
:oid, was blessed in his work. In fact
it is not unlikely that he and Pastor

ryr.od. The Rev. A. G. Voigt, D.D.,
:cl!s us in the Lutheran Cyclopedia
"hat Pastor Brown was first sent by
;he synod to become the first mi.
icnary to serve the Lutherans who
lad migrated to that state from the
^arolinas, others followed and the
lynod was organized in 1855.
Incidentally the writer and present
castor had his )'irsc call to tjie Beth
Cden congregation in \Vinst n couny,
Mi^s., and served those people
ron July, 1901, to the early part of
903. The congregation was named

of these two men.
After Pastor Sheupard's removal,
he congregation was likely vacant vV
luring the year 1S53. At least it
iras not until '54 that the Rev. R. J.

prccsing young J. T. Bowles, a bro "
ther to Jcfcn, to ejiter and complet ^
?his most worthy trio of young an; useful
ministers sent out by the oh
congregation. Chapman in his An e
nals of Newberry says, "While pasto? *
* * he was mainly instrumen
tal in inducing: three of his member
to study for the ministry: Revs. J. D
Bowles, J. T. Bowles and J. A Sligh."
We read where J. A. Sli^l 1and
J. D. Bowles entered the scmin
ary at Lexington in January of 185i
and J. T. Bowles in February of th< 1
same year, which was about the verj
heart of Pastor Hungerpeler's pas
torate. After the death of Pasto"
Hungcrpeler, June 20, 185G, the remaining
months of the year were ?
served by the Rev. Jacob Moses a.< '
the 8th pastor. :
The 9th pastor was the Rev. Jaco,':
Hawkins, a many sided, 'g:reat and f

consecrated man, active and very energetic.

astor Hawkins served from 1856-ji
10. Soon after his departure the'
Duntry was thrown into the great j ]
ivil war. During this troublesome! i
eriod, the Rev. Prof. James M.
hreckhise of Newberry college was j
ailed to supply the work till a regu- j
ir pastor could be called. But so:
'ell pleased was the congregation,'
s well as so scarce were the pastors
t the time that Pastor Schreckhise j
ras prevailed on and did continue his
ervices as the 10th pastor till the j
lose of the waf. j
At the close of the war Pastor;
lawkins was called to become the
aster for the second time and serv-,
d from 1865-'70, when he was sue-'
eeded by the Rev. J. D. Shirey, the
leventh pastor, who served from
S70-'S2, a periqd of twelve years,
rhich was the longest in the history
'f the congregation.
Pastor Shirey was succeeded by

ong and interesting congregation, j la
During this time she has had at! at
[east 375 communicant members,1 p*
md many baptized members,;
in other churches, many who 'were \
never confirmed and many yet to be p;
confirmed. The old church is justly!
proud of her great Sligh?a great at
pastor and statesman, a great leader. C1
of men, a great friend of Newberry j
college and all the other church in- ;
stitutions; proud of her two Bowles' sv
?great and consocrated pastors like | uSl:gh,
two great friends of New.ber-jA
ry college and the church's other in-!
stitutions. It will be of interest to :
know that these two brothers were j0
amor.g the prime factors, as two of:
the first students, of Newberry col- f.
lege who organized the Phrenakos-.
mian and Excelsior societies. Kev. j
J. D. Bowles was the. first presides
of'the Phrenakosmian a::d Jeff T. of V7
the Excelsior, and last but not least,
the congregation is proud of her Dr.;
Geo. B. Cromer who received his
spiritual birth in her walls.
At present her oldest member, and',?(
the only cne living, at least in this
st:.tc, who was born before her organization
is Mr. J. G. Rikard, who
is nearly 82 years old and nearly .
three'years older than the organization.
Like his father, he has contin- n
nn:ic1v boon one of her officers for
over 50 years. May the long history.
of this venerable congregation with
the ever guiding hand of God who! ^
has led her safely through these ma- ~
ny years of clouds and sunshine, be 11
ever the means of inspiration for her;
present and future. And may the
