Stennett Church Will Be Removed
Union Church to Becoe Community Church.
At a meeting held at the Stennett
Community church Monday, June 22, the congregation voted
to change the name from a Union church to a Community
church and to reincorporate for a period of 50 years.
Articles of Incorporation are to be filed with County
Recorder Adrian G. Illingsworth by Attorney Lester L. Orsborn
Such action gives the congregation
possession of the church property at Stennett. It
is the purpose of the trustees to sell the property at
public auction on Monday, July 19, and to put the funds
The Stennett Union church is one of the
oldest religious organizations in the county. The
building was constructed by Mr. and Mrs. Wayne
Stennett in 1892 on land deeded to the organization
and the church was used for all community gatherings in
that part of the county until the new consolidated
school building was built at Stennett, since which time
all religious and social gatherings, have been held in
the school gymnasium.
The sale and removal of the old church
building which stands just east of the Stennett store
building, will mark the passing of an old land mark in
the northern part of Montgomery County.
