Narrative of Religion

There have been the regular services during

the year. The attendance has varied according to

the condition of weather and roads. with no

percepible increase or decrease. The Sabbath

School has been kept up with a good

attendance. There is no mission work

done nor Home department work. The

Christian Endeavor Society has kept up

its meetings when the weather was passable

but there was little through the

winter with bad roads and rough weather

The women's meetings have been well

sustained although they have had valuable

loss. Their contributions have been up to

former years, and there is much to comment

in their work and zeal. Kings Daylilies

Society has given help in a school in

the South and has helped to clothe the poor

in the neighborhood. There has been no

special revival spirit but the steady work

of the year with an increas in contributing

to the Boards of the Church

192. Preaching service is held every Sabbath

morning & evg with very gratifying attendance. Prayer

meeting is held Wed evy & is fairly well attended.

Sabbath School meets every Sabbath morning & is kept

up with increasing attendance interest. Young

Peoples Society of Xetn Endeavor is held every Sabboth

evg & the meetings are well sustained althugh the

membership hitherto has been somewhat small. A

Junior Society of Xetn Endeavor has been organized

during the year & is already proving its value as a

adjunct to the church. Its membership is 35. Both

the Womens Home & Foreign Missy Society & the Kings

Daughter Society are active in their several sphere

of Xetn work. H & F Missy Soc hvg contributed over

$60.00 to those objects & King's Daughters in addition to

donating a sewing machine to a colored School in the

South have been active in charitable philanthropic

work. Contributions have been made to all the Boards

of the church.

We have been visited with a gracious religious awakening

during the year. The labors of Evangelist E. F Walker

of Indianapolis Presbytry Ind have been greatly blessed

to us in the conversion of souls. As one result

we have received into our membership 86 of profession

of faith. Many of these (probably abt 35) came from

the Sabbath School & Junior Endeavor Society but the

members of the church also have been around to ren-

ewed interest & zeal & greater harmony prevails than

heretofore amongst our membership.

Narrative

The year just closed has not been one of memorial

growth with us & although we cannot point to any in-

crease in our membership yet we trust there has

been a growth of grace. Morning & evening ser

vices have been held regularly throughout the year (with

a very few exceptions in the evg. service when the roads were al-

most impassable) & the attendance at both has been en-

couraging. At the morning service our average attendance

has been about 125 & the evening about 97. Prayer

meetings held every Wed. evg. with an average attendance

of about 58. The youth of the church is well represented

at the services especially the Sabbath evg. service &

prayer meeting. The attendance at the Sabbath School has

been encouraging as has also been that of the "Junior"

U.P.S.C.E Societies.

The Womens Home & Foreign Missy Society has been active during

the past year in their work on behalf of missions. Rewards of

$63.00 has been sent by them to these Boards.

A young ladies Circle of "Kings" Daughters has been organized during

the year which, together with the previously existing Circle

has been active in charitable & philanthropic work both in

this neighborhood and elsewhere.

The benevolences of the church have been well sustained, con-

tributions have been made to all of the Board & these show a slight

increase over the previous year.

During the year we have commenced on some needed repairs to our

church building & also on the addition of a Sabbath School Room.

Already the Treasurer has real contributions for these purposes

amounting to almost $700.00. The work is now well under way &

we hope that before long we shall have a building better adapted to the needs

of our Sabbath School & Congregation. A Special meeting was held

in Feb in which we had the assistance of Rev. C.L. Work of Granville. The

the attendance at the meeting was encouraging & we trust that the results

though, not very apparent, have been real.

Narrative

During the past year contributions in the Trenton

Church have been much as in former years.

The morning & evening services have been held

with regularity with a few exceptions when the con=

dition of the church building rendered the holding

of services inadvisable. The average attendance

has been good. Weekly Prayer meetings has been

held during the year with an encouraging attendance

& interest. The Sabbath School & the Y.P.S.C.E

(both senior and junior) have each been active in

the various lines of duty during the past year

The Women's Home & foreign Missy. Soc. has likewise been

active during the year in their work on behalf of missions

with liberal contributions to both Home & Foreign Boards.

Both circles of the Kings Daughters Society have engaged in

their charitable & philanthropic work with diligence during

the year. The contributions to the various Boards have been

fully as liberal as in previous years; in several ins-

tances a marked advance in liberality has been shown.

The repairs on the church building which have been going on for

some time are almost completed & we look forward to the

future with hope.

Narrative

The year just closed has not differed very greatly

from many in the past. But yet we feel

that these are not wanting signs of growth and

progress. The regular Sabbath services (morning

and evening) have been maintained throughout the

year & have been well attended averaging perhaps

130 present at the morning and 50 at the evening

service. The weekly prayer meeting has likewise

been regularly maintained with very encouraging

interest. The average attendance upon the service

has been about 30. Sabbath School &

The Young Peoples Societies (both Senior & Junior)

have been fully up to the average of former years.

The same may be said of the Women's Home and

Foreign Missionary Society & of the two Circles

of Kings Daughters all of which have been

diligent & faithful in the various lines of

Christian activity. The contribution to the several

Boards of the church have been up to the average

in some instances showing an increase, in

others a slight decrease. During the year the

repairs on the church Building have been com-

pleted & the church re-dedicated free of debt on Sabb.

Sept 11th the greater portion of the money then subscribed

has now been paid. During the year Philander Edminster

a member of our Session has been called to his great reward.

Narrative 1908-'09.

The Session of the Trenton Ch in presenting

the Narrative for the year just closed would

report that the work of this church has not

differed materially from that of past years.

Morning & evening Sabbath services have been

maintained throughout the year with an ^average attendance

of 85 at the former & 40 at the latter service

Sabbath School & Young People. Meeting ((illegible)

& Jun.) have likewise been maintained throught

the year with encouraging attendance & interest.

The Women's Societies ("H. & F. Miss Soc." & "King's

Daughters") have shown commendable faithfulness

& diligence in their work throughout the year although

the offerings from the Missy. Societies have not

quite come up to the ^high average of last year.

The weekly Prayer meeting has had an average

attendance of 25 throughout the year. All the

Boards of the church have been remembered

in our contributions. A slight falling off

is noticed in one or two instances but this

is accounted for by the fact that the Women's

Missy. Society has not entirely equaled its

former liberality. Five have been added to

the church on Confession of Faith, three have

been restored; six dismissed; & five placed

upon the suspended Roll leaving us a net total

membership of 139.

Narrative

In presenting our Narrative for the year just

closed we would says that it has not differed

greatly from others in the past. The continued

exodus from the farm to the city has affected us-

as it has all country churches - & a con-

siderable extent. And yet ^in spite of this the work of the church

has been carried forward throughout the year with

faithfulness. The attendance at both morning &

evening services is about as usual with an

average of perhaps 90 at the former & 40 at the

latter service. The Sabbath School & Young

Peoples Societies (both C.E. & Jun C.E.) have been

maintained & have come on their work with

faithfulness diligence. The Missy Societies

& the King's Daughters Circle have likewise been

faithful. Their contributions have been up to the

average (we think) of former years. The Weekly Prayer

Meeting has been maintained with an average attendance

of 18 or 20. All the Boards of the Church

have been contributed to the amount being

about the same as last year. Special

services were held for 10 days commencing Mar. 3rd.

In these services the pastor had the valued assistance

of Rev. D.D. Biggs, D.D. (synodical Missy.) Although no

direct results were apparent from the meetings in [illegible]

yet we feel that the church has been helped by

them. The total membership this year is 136.

Resolutions

Feb. 23, 1915 On the death of Elder E. J. Post.

Whereas: God in His infinite wisdom has seen

fit to remove our beloved brother in the Lord

E. J. Post from the church on earth to the Church

in Heaven, and,

Where-as: He had served this church as an

elder for almost forty-two years, and,

Whereas: His life and walk both as a Christian

citizen and as an officer in the church were

a living example to the rising generation.

to relate yet we can say that

our church has progressed more

than the ordinary under the

ministrations of our very

church building. Also have

Frecoed the walls in very pretty

oil colors Also have installed

a Delco lighting system in both

the Church & Parsonage at a cost

of $570.00 and ore important

than all our community spirit

has been fostered and a spirit of

good will exists in a more than

usual degree. Services have been

regularly held and well attended

and a spirit of good will prevails

so good a report as we have sometimes had

However we have had preaching services

every Sabbath and in most cases two

services each sabbath. With only one

exception and that day was provided

for but an account of the extreme cold

and the presence of "flu" in our midst.

at the suggestion of the supply the

services ^were call off. The only Evangelist

services during the year were held by

our present supply for one week prior

to Easter. The attendance at those meetings

was good considering that the weather

for farm operations was extra good

and many of our members were very

busy. Owing to many removals our

working membership has depleted.

We are being supplied at present by a

Baptist Minister Rev J.M. Huston of Sunbury.

Taking a look back over the year

Just passed we find our church in

a very favorable condition as compared

with former years. We started out

with a supply in the person of J M [illegible]

a baptist minister formerly of Sunbury

and at the fall meeting of Presbytery he

made application to come into our Presbytery

Our regular communion season have

been observed and a good attendance

on such occasions. We had a S.S.

picnic at Greenwood Lake Delaware in

August and a very pleasant time.

We sent representatives to all regular meetings

of Presbytery and also to most of the extras

We had a time coming in the autumn

which was attended by nearly all our

living pastors and supplies and a large

number of our old membership. A very

enjoyable season it proved to be for all.

Our Presbyterian Guild has kept up its

regular meetings during the year. They

have been remarkable well attended.

Our Young married men's bible class

"The Gideons" put on a lecture course

that was a success. Giving us a fine

course of entertainments at a reasonable

price and had enough money left to

make a neat sum for the famine relief

We also observed our custom of a

New Years dinner at the church at which

time a state speaker for the Farm Bureau

gave us an address. A goodly number

were present and an excellent time for all

Our Evangelistic meeting conducted

by Rev J.S. Bingham was very well

attended considering the bad weather and

The bad condition of our roads

A very good attendance was had and

a considerable interest was seen

Quite a number of our S.S. children

expressed a desire to lead a christian

life. And arrangements have been

made for Mr Huston to take them

into a class during the Sunday School

hour and give them instructions in

Christian living after which we

expect to receive them into the church

Our finances have been fairly well

met. On Apr 1st 1919 our expenses

including our pastors salary were all

paid and a balance in Treasury of $80.

But our New Era fund had only a

small part been paid but enough

funds not yet paid appeared on

the treas. book to pay all our appointment

We started the year with a membership

of 126 of which we lost 4 by death, one by

dismission. Received 2 by letter and restored one

leaving us a membership of 124

collected and expended as follows

As we take a glance over the work

that has been accomplished since our

Pastor has been with us we find the

following material things

A new bell was installed in the

belfry and it not proving satisfactory

was returned and another one installed

in its place. The manse has been

greatly improved by corking the windows

putting in new registers and return

air pipes to improve the heating

capacity of the furnace. A changing

of the water system that supplies the

kitchen and bath room.

A large bulletin board placed on corner

of church lot.

A tall flag pole planted in front of

Church

The taking down of the barn built to

accommodate a horse & buggy and

a cow with more room above moving

and rebuilding into a fine large

garage and work shop together with

a room for the Delco plant that was

formerly installed in the cellar

A new floor covering was purchased

and laid in our church parlor

A new aisle covering for our Church

and finally a new name for our

Church The First Presbyterian Church

of Condit O

All of which has been the direct result

of the energy skill and work man-

ship of our Pastor Rev C R. Thomas

A total of about three thousand dollars

has been raised the last year by our

congregation

That we think is quite a record when

We find ourselves without a

Pastor now as Rev Thomas has

Preached his last sermon today

On June 24th last a party of 4

men dropped in to hear our pastor

preach and as a result in the

following sabbath our pastor called

the officers of the church together after

the evening service and told us

in confidence that the men

were a committee from the Church

of Ada O looking for a candidate

for their pulpit.

Later the Ada Church gave

Rev Thomas a call and he accepted

We were loth to let him go but he

considered it a call to a larger

field of wider usefulness and we

gave him up fully appreciating

the splendid work he had done

in our midst while he was with

with us. Hoping we may be guided in

the work of selecting and calling a

new man by the spirit of the Lord.

after a full understanding of the situation

Rev Lee promised to resign Sept 1st

Sunday Jan 7th 1934. Rev H G. Rice called

the Session together to ask that they

concur with him in calling a

Congregational meeting to request

Presbytery to dissolve his relationship

as Pastor of the Condit Presbyterian

Church. After the Pastor had given

his reasons for the being the wisest

course to follow the session commuted

to grant his request and Tuesday

evening Jun 16th 1934 was the date set

for the congregational meeting.

As Elder L. S. Condit had passed away

since our last meeting it was thought

fitting by our moderator that the

following item of History be included

in these minutes.

On the 30th day of Nov 1933. Elder

L. S. Condit at the age of almost 80 yrs

was called from our midst by the great

reaper whose name is death.

My Condit had been member of this

church and for almost 40 yrs

had served this church in the capacity of

elder (chosen elder April 29th 1984) During his

long period of service he had seen the

church in many apparently critical situation

and had helped greatly to bring it to

its present state of efficiency. As the

infirmities of age increased he was

less and less able to inspire its members

to material and spiritual understandings

than in former years. While we realize

that Mr Condit made mistakes as all

those who are leaders are sure to do

yet we feel that his successes far

outweigh his failures and that the

church owes much to his efforts for

which he usually received scant

thanks.

He was a faithful attendant of

the various church services and

thought the prayer meetings should

be kept up even though the attend-

ance be small, and it is with regret

that we think of him as being no

more with us but it is with thankful-

ness that we can think that his

departing to be with Christ is far

better for him.

The minutes of the last meeting were

read and approved. Elders present

not unanimous it was decided

request of Mr and Mrs Chas Smith

them letters although they clearly

stated that they did not know

We began our anniversary celebration.

On this date we observed Rally Day

with a program by the Sabbath

School and short sermon by the

pastor Rev H. M. Frederick. The Evening

program consisted of a pageant

written by Mr. T. C. Murphy portraying

the organization of the Church in

1836. The Twenty charter members

were represented by young people

of the congregation. Rev. H. N. Frederick

taking the part of the Rev C. N. Ransom

who organized the church 100 years

ago, this was followed by a histor-

ical pageant of the organization of

the C. E. Society in 1888 during the

pastorate of Rev Albert E. Sharpless,

This pageant was written by Miss

Mabel Comstock and was presented

by the members of the present

C. E. Society. The following Tuesday

roll they could find although through

learned that the Society was

20 or more responses from friends

and relatives. the program closed

with a play entitled, "If I be his

disciple". which we thought was

exceedingly well acted.

Sunday Oct 18th was home-coming

day. Rev. Charles Reeder of Weihnrin

China preached the sermon.

Rev. Charles Reeder is the grandson

of Mr. Simon Pierson who became

elder Nov. 28th 1869 this office he held

until his death.

Mr. Reeder's text was from the first

in his field in China for years they

seemed to lack power there after visiting

DEDICATION OF

TRENTON PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

SUNDAY, MAY 25, 1879

The old Meeting House is discarder.

For a new and imposing Edifice,

of increased proportions, in design,

Yet permanently adapted the Christian worship

Of an Enlightened an Zealous Denomination

of God's People.

Notwithstanding the somewhat unpropitious state of the weather

on Sunday, that most acceptable day of rest, there was furnished

a brief season of exceptionable enjoyment, morally, socially and

religiously, for the good people of Trenton and adjacent townships.

the occasion being the consecration of an absolute model sanctuary

to the worship of the Almighty. The day had long been anxiously

looked forward to by the Presbyterian brethren and their interest

had arrived at its zenith on Saturday Eve. but only to be somewhat

dampened by the dawn of a dull and showery morning, which, however,

was such an inestimable boon for vegetation that they cheerfully

waived personal inconvenience, and in goodly number rallied to

the selected spot, for the day's observation. It is within half

a mile of Condit Station, directly south, at the first crossing

of the roads.


Presbyterianism in Trenton

It would be in keeping here, we may say, that as early

as 1836 there were formed sufficient devotees to the good faith

to secure the organization of a church. With such zealous work-

ers as Alvin Condit, A. C. Fink, Robt't Lewis, G VanDorn, Silas

Ogden and Alvin T. Condit, it is a small matter of surprise that

we find a church erected and consecrated the following year,

which though small, it will yet be clearly demonstrated, was

ample to foster ad promote the interests and affections of a

subsequent Church of gratifying proportion. In the humble Cot

(for it was little more) the true teachings of Christianity fell

like seed upon good ground, as we find 1866 a new and much

larger church had to be provided, affording increased facilities

for the prosecution of the noble mission in hand. Elated with

their success in the past, and invigorated with unction from

above in response to prayers that accompanied their sweet labors,

they steadily pursued their noble mission to the dawn of last

year.

When it became evident that their ranks were filling beyond

the capacity of their camp, under divine blessing, they again

resolved to meet the exigencies of the hour, and as a result of

their councils and a canvass for financial aid, in May last, the

foundation of a yet large Church was laid with becoming cere-

monies. the build committee entrusted with the supervision

of the work was Messars. I. A. Pierson, H. Wheaton, L. S. Condit, Enoch

Condit and E. Rice, who applied their united talents and energies

to a nobel work that will stand a lasting monument to their

Christian zealand devotion. For twelve long months was the work

carefully prosecuted with a single eye to economy and the perfect

completion of their task, and never were combined efforts more

successfully directed.


The New Presbyterian Church,

which was solemnly dedicated on Sunday, is a very neat frame

structure, with bell tower in half-Grecian style, and set upon

a solid stone foundation. The dimensions are about 51 feet by

33 and 21 feet high. Its acoustic properties are excellent and

the method of ventilation by the side windows is perfect. From

the sanctuary and by an external side door a commodious commit-

tee room is entered, thus adapting it also to the purpose of a

vestry. The interior woodwork is of ash and walnut. The seats

being plain but exceedingly comfortable. The reading desk and

minister's chairs, three in number, on the raised dias, are rich-

ly carved in ecclesiastical designs. The several windows are of

handsomely designed stained glass, each being surmounted in its

curvature with a beautifully illuminated crown, anchor, sheaf,

dove, bible tablets, grapes and other scriptural emblems. These

are the workmanship of Mr. George Misch, an accomplished artist

of Chicago. The floor and platform are very suitably carpeted

and over the center aisle is suspened a brilliant 12-light

glass chandelier with innumerable miniature prismatic pendants.

the illuminating power is effective by night, under the rich

lusture afforded by the sparkling glass, and the amber-colored

lamps in contrast with the ornamented globes is charming to the

eye by day. The interior of the church is also further beautiful-

fied by artistic fresco work, after the latest designs, composed

of soft toned blendings of various rich tints, throwing off a

contrast most pleasing, yet chaste and in strict keeping with

the purpose of the structure, wherein the presence of the Great

Jehovah may be invoked. The seating capacity now secured will

accommodate about four hundred persons, and right heartily

pleased we are to record that the successful labors of the much

beloved pastor and members of this zealous denomination are rap-

idly increasing its actual membership, nearly half that number

already. With this brief sketch of the church and its new place

of worship, we proceed to report

The Consecration Services

At a quarter to eleven the major part of the seats were taken

and upon the dias was seated their pastor, the Rev. R. Wylie, as

also the Rev. N. S. Smith. D.D. of Delaware, and the Rev. A.S.

Carson of Westerville, the latter being visitors to participate

in the interesting services. The Rev. Wylie having opened the

meeting with prayer, the choir of the church, which is peculiarly

fortunate in its possession of naturally good voices, under the

efficient and painstaking leadership of Mr. Smith Ketchum, sup-

ported by L.S. Condit, sang that beautiful anthem, "Jerusalem, My

Happy Home," with a spirit of enthusiasm well calculated to con-

vey the beautiful sentiment of the composition to every Christian

heart; after which Rev. Smith read the lesson for the day, and

Rev. Carson offered up a prayer. An appropriate dedication

hymn was then ably rendered by the Rev. Smith, whose attentive

and deeply interested congregation had increased very largely by

this time, His subject was on the unity of Christ with God, his

pre-existence with the Father before the world, The wonderful

and bountiful condescension of God, through the gift of His Holy

Spirit in the Savior, establishing direct communication with Him-

self. The beautiful teachings afforded by the life of Christ

were most effectually set forth, and man's necessity of salvation,

with its only method to be obtained, was dwelt upon with remark-

able fevor, while he earnest implored that divine blessing might

descend and ever remain on the people of Trenton, and that those

who previously have gone home might awake to righteousness, and

those who were still found living when the last trumpet shall be

sounded may be caught up in realms of endless bliss. After the

sermon, Rev. Wylie stated that the Cost of the beautiful

building they now occupied amounted to $2888.96, of which

$2842.50 had been subscribed, leaving only the nominal sum of

$46.46 to be raised to clear the entire under taking. They would

however, require the addition of a heating apparatus in the win-

ter, which no doubt would come around in due season, and they

might congratulate themselves on a thoroughly replete and com-

fortable house of worship in which to meet their God in relig-

ious communion. As customary on such occasions, the "Old

Hundredth" was adopted to the singing of the doxology, the ven-

erable strains of which were heartily participated in by the

whole congregation.

In the Evening

the weather having cleared off beautifully, the congregation, as

was expected, numbered from four to five hundred persons from all

parts. The choir opened the service with a fine anthem. "Doxol-

ogy." After which old "Coronation" was sung by all present with

heart and voice. The same reverend gentlemen who officiated

in the morning were again present in the evening. Rev. Carson

preaching a magnificent discourse from the 65th Psalm, 4th verse,

which though exhaustive was listened to with marked attention

by his audience, and deemed by all to be a most masterly argu-

ment in support of God's Church. After an appropriate hymn, the

benediction was pronounced by Rev. Wylie and thus ended a day

long to be remembered in Trenton.


We may add that to intensify the enjoyment of the day's pro-

ceeding, it was also the eleventh anniversary for the Rev. Robert

Wylie becoming the pastor of the little flock at this place,

with whom he has labored most earnestly and sucessfully to the

glory of God. He was the recipient of many congratulations,

especially as Trenton was his first charge as a minister. His

success has been so highly flattering and it was his privilege

now to preside over one of the hansomest and most comfortable

church buildings in this section of the state, while retaining

the heartiest co-operation and prayers of his Flock.
