BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL: The Galilee Christian Church was founded in 1873 and has been in existence for nearly 150 years. The church is dedicated to Christian service. Initially, a small church building was constructed on land provided by Mr. James Clevenger and within a few short years, the congregation had grown considerably. A new building was constructed approximately twenty years after its founding and has since remained in use. The congregation remains intact and steadfast in their service of Christ and they continue to grow and amass new followers and support.
