Church: Nevins, Wis., Congregational Church (1903)

Contact: Janet


A Congregational Church of sixteen members was organized at Nevins July 14, 1903. It is called the first Congregational church of Sherwood. Rev. Henry Faville D. D. of LaCrosse acted as moderator of the council and Hon. Geo. H. Ray as scribe. Rev. Homer W. Carter D. D. of Beloit preached the sermon. G. W. Longenecker received the members into covenant, and baptised one of the candidates. Prayer was offered by Rev. John Willan of Huron and right hand of fellowship was given by Rev. J. D. Whitelaw of Ashland. Miss Harlow of Pittsville also took part in the exercises of the evening. Picnic supper was served to the large crowd and all went away with a feeling of enthusiasm for the new organization.
