Ft. Jones Church built in 1873, has been used as a Methodist Church
for 139 years. The historic white church sits at the top
of Sterling Street, above the Post Office. As you well know, anywhere
that has been used for Fellowship for that many years has a special
feel to it.
a Methodist Episcopal Church in northern Scott Valley was conceived
by individuals who contributed funds to begin building this church.
Among them were A.J. Goodnoe, A.B Carlock, J.A. Davidson, Rev.
I. Reynolds, J.K. Luttrell, Geo. E. Evans, and many others. The
church was dedicated on June 24, 1874. The cost was $1,600, half
of which was donated throughout the construction, and $500 more
raised at the dedication, with $330 still due at that time.
Over time, there have been many baptisms, marriages, celebrations,
and funerals held in the little church. For this historic
Church to continue to be
a presence in Fort Jones, our support is needed.
If you have ever been to their previous Fund-raisers, Dessert
Auctions or the Scott Valley Bluegrass Festival, then you KNOW
the pies the 'Church Ladies'
make are outstanding.
you there . . .
by keeping it local!
