(I believe this to be the original First Methodist Church located in, perhaps, the 100 Block of South Royal Street
and was destroyed by fire on November 29, 1929. I also believe that I see my grandfather, John W. Lovelace at the wheel of the auto on the far right. Please correct me if I am in error.)
The church burned on November 29, 1929. They used the Miners Hall again, and
began building the church we have today.
In 1955 Royalton and Zeigler were made a two-point charge sharing a pastor. The church celebrated its 50th year anniversary October 30, 1966.
The present Pastor is Rolland H. Devor Jr.
