The Wilton Bible Fellowship
By Mrs. C. M. Ferguson

Transcribed by Lynn McCleary, April 18, 2015

     Early in the year 1964 several families in the surrounding area of Wilton had been expressing their desire to meet together for the purpose of worship, Bible study and fellowship.

     On the 23rd of February, twelve people et together in the Wilton City Hall for a worship service. There was a moderate growth in the number of people who attended the Sunday morning services that followed.

     Pastor and Mrs. C. M. Ferguson led the Sunday school and worship services until February, 1966, when, in response to a call, they went to Swaziland to serve the Colored people there in the Florence Christian Academy.

     The Christian Businessmen’s organization of Muscatine was approached to take the leadership of the services in the City Hall. From that group Mr. Verle Nietzel, Mr. Eldon Davis, Mr. James Cook and Mr. Don Lewis have ably led the group in worship and Bible study.

     This small group has experienced a gradual growth. The services appeal to those who desire to study the Bible in a plain and simple way, to worship God in a simple way and to preach God’s Good News of salvation to those who have not been saved by grace through faith.

     The intent of the Wilton Bible Fellowship can be summed up with the scripture verse found in II Timothy 2:15, “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth to to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.”
