First United Methodist to mark 125th
LEETONIA -The Leetonia First United Methodist Church on Lisbon Street is planning a celebration in honor of its 125th anniversary this year.
The church got its start when a group of people separated from the Franklin Square Methodist Church in 1869, and met at the home of Catherine Shelton Stewart, 322 State St., Leetonia. Samuel Keene was chosen to organize the group, which grew rapidly. Their first minister was the Rev. J.J. Jackson. As the group continued to grow, they purchased Jordan Hall on Main Street to hold services. In 1871 they purchased the ground where the church still stands today.
A celebration commemorating the anniversary will be held Aug. 19. The regular church service begins at 9:45 a.m., followed by a luncheon at noon and then the anniversary celebration starting at 1 p.m. Several past ministers will return to join in the celebration. The ladies sewing group has been making anniversary pillows from old choir robes and embroidered with the Methodist cross and the anniversary date. They are being sold for $12. Cookbooks with recipes submitted by members of the church and surrounding community are also available for $10. To purchase pillows or cookbooks or questions about the program call 330-427-6634 or 330-427-2037.
