Sin, earth, and hell I now defy; I lean upon
my Savior's breast: I rest beneath the Almighty's shade; My grieves
expire, my troubles cease: Thou, Lord, on whom my soul is stayed, Wilt
keep me still in perfect peace.
Me for Thine own Thou lov'st to take, In time and in eternity;
Thou never, never wilt forsake, A helpless soul that trusts in Thee.

America about 1770. During the Revolution many Methodist leaders were
suspected Tories and left the country, but shortly thereafter lay ministers
and circuit riders began spreading the Methodist movement westward along the
The organizational system of the Methodists lent
itself to our new, developing country. Twelve persons with a lay leader
became a "class". Two "classes" could join to form a "society". Circuits
were formed for ministers to travel, serving up to 20 classes or societies.
When a society became large enough to have a full-time minister, it became a
"station". At least 12 stations were enough to be formed into a "district"
with a superintendent. Two or more districts could become a "conference" and
have a bishop.

Trustees of Apple Creek Presbyterian Church, "to the only proper use

* 1820 - 1829: Reverend Thomas Barr was pastor.
Thomas Barr, was born April 2, 1775 at Derry, Westmore- land county, Pa.
When he was about three years old his father, Col. Alexander Barr, was
called to serve in the Revolutionary War, and took his family to his wife's
father's family, near Fort Loudon, Franklin County, Pa. Here Thomas went to
school. Mr. Barr was a man of talent, a good sound theologian, an
acceptable preacher, and a faithful, laborious pastor. And God blessed his
Mr. Barr labored efficiently from 1820 to 1829. There
were encouraging additions to the church throughout his pastorate. We have
no records of any kind during the pastorate of Mr. Barr, but from what is
known of Mr. Barr's intelligence and faithfulness we cannot doubt that he
instructed and trained his people to give cheerfully of their substance to
the Lord. There was but little money in circulation in those days. Yet we
know that it was in 1823, under Mr. Barr's leadership, that the second house
of worship, the "brick church," was erected (see next paragraph). We have good authority for saying that his salary was about
$200 a year for one half of his time, payable partly in money and partly in

church era: Under Reverend Barr's guidance a new brick church was

48' by 36' was built. It had board seats and backs, each member providing
his own. For two years the floor was sand, then boards were laid down. It
was to serve for twenty years.
School: Early in the history of the church, in 1823 the records say, a Sabbath
School (our present day Sunday School?) was organized in the Apple Creek
Church by Rev. Mr. Bair. It was literally a Bible School, as at the time
there were no lesson helps published. Earnest Christian men and women
conducted the school as they best knew.

The Apple Creek congregation

Reverend Joseph S. Wylie as Stated Supply with a view to his becoming their
settled pastor. They decided to give him a salary of $450 per year.
It was during Reverend Wylie's pastorate that the congregation secured their
third church building. lt was a large frame building on the
Presbyterian Cemetery property (see photo
above). It served as our church from 1843 to 1888.

the American Legion in 1946. The American Legion used it for 20 years

enrollments and rural hard times of the 1920s pushed an idea that had been
in the minds of leaders for years. Namely that a unified church in Apple
Creek would further the cause of the Gospel, and surely the will of God.
Leaders from the three churches held meetings and decided to combine the
Presbyterian Church with 209 members and the Methodists with 256 members
into the Apple Creek United Church. (This church later
became the Apple Creek United Methodist Church.)
** The notes in red

* 1927: Storm clouds appeared on the horizon
despite renewed interest and increased attendance and funding. The higher
officials of the denominations had mixed feelings about the merger as did
some of the local Presbyterians who had voted against the issue. As a
result, presbytery enacted a resolution that the Presbyterians who had
joined the Methodists could come back into the Presbyterian building as
Presbyterian or be dismissed. Undaunted, all but about 40 of the
Presbyterian stayed in the Federated Church, which was now forced to move
back into the smaller, older building. At this point the Calvary
Presbyterian Church was formed. It functioned in the Presbyterian building
until 1945 with 40 plus members.

Note from David
Munn, 5/10/2013: Rev. Budd
Grindstaff passed away (sadly he was stricken at church)
in late fall of 2001. I came to ACUM Church in Dec. 2001
and the pulpit was filled for a few Sundays until Feb.
2002 by a retired minister. I donít remember his name.
Then in an unusual move Rev. Karen Oehl was moved over
from the two point charge at Marshalville and a small
church at Easton to be the full time Pastor at Apple
Creek UMC in February 2002. Rev. Oehl served ACUM from
February 2002 to June 2006.
ACUM Church had received a double measure of sorrow in
the fact that retired pastor Rev. Hardman and appointed
pastor Rev. Grindstaff passed away in mid and late fall
of 2001 respectively. The District Superintendent and
Bishop moved Rev. Oehl earlier than the traditional
moves at the end of June to help heal the wounds.
