Established in 1912
A group of men met in February 1912 at one of their homes. They organized at the end of the month and chose Eden Evangelical as their name. By the next month, their committee had purchased a vacant lot and they began to have services in a nearby church until their own building was constructed.
The dedication of the church building took place on 26 April 1913. Contemporary accounts show it was a lovely day and there were about 1,000 guests. The church could not accommodate so many people, and the pastor actually repeated his presentation for those who were outside.
This congregation has a rich history of service to the community and of fellowship among congregants. They are looking forward to a bright future.
