District Histories

HISTORY OF DISTRICT ONE

District one was formed after the establishing of the Mount Bethel Baptist Church in the year of 1866.  Deacon Dread Henry was given the task of leader.  He served well until the early 40’s and then he decided to resign his position to a younger man, Deacon Marion Barney.  Deacon Barney served until his sudden death in the year of 1949.  In the same year, Deacon Samuel Barney, Sr. joined with Deacon Henry to lead the district.  The district grew greatly in size and grace.  Deacon Samuel Barney, Sr. was called to rest in 1959.  Deacon Dread Henry continued to lead the district until 1963.  At this time he resigned his position to Deacon Samuel Barney, Jr.  The district continued to hold its number one position for years with the help of the Lord, Deacon Samuel Barney, Jr. and the wisdom of Deacon Henry.  Deacon Henry was called to rest in the year of 1971.

Faithfully, Deacon Samuel Barney, Jr. led the district continuously with the help of the Lord.  He had many faithful and diligent workers to assist him in carrying out the work for the district.  His officers were as follows; Bro. Edward Alexander (president, Sis. Sarah Kilpatrick (secretary), and Bro. Earl Huland (treasurer).  After the death of Bro. Edward Alexander, Sis Andrea Felder became the president and Deacon Charlie Barlow (vice-president and assistant leader.  The district continued to grow strong in the Lord.  The following year after Sis. Andrea Felder resigned as president, Sis. Mattie Jarrell became president.  Sis. Mattie Jarrell continued to hold the office until her health started failing.  Bro. Walter Rosier, Jr held the office of president for a year and after this time Sis. Iris Rosier became president.

Our beloved leader, Deacon Samuel Barney, Jr. passed in 2003, and Deacon Charlie Barlow became our district leader.  A few years later our secretary, Sis. Sarah Kilpatrick passed and her niece, Sis. Dorothy Demps filled that office.  Presently, we have grown and are still on our missions and we continue to be strong in the Lord.

In 2018 Sister Clara Washington went home to be with the Lord.

Our new member for 2018 is Sister Vera Rosier, wife of Brother Don Rosier.
