Original Church Building Built In 1858
 
New Church Building Completed In 1958

Founded in 1845

 
 
 1845    New Prospect was formed on land owned by John Martin near Jim Coleman's house.
               When the church joined the Reedy River Association, we had 29 members.
 
 1858     A wooden building was built. Rev. Silas Knight was one of our early pastors. These were
               hard times, and the early preacher usually had to farm to supplement their incomes.

 1896     Membership: 140  During this period, country churches were larger than city churches as
                most everybody farmed.  We left the Reedy River Association to join the new Laurens
                County Association.
