White Oak Pond Cumberland Presbyterian Church
This body of Christ welcomes you to White Oak Pond Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Our church has a mission to love people and to minister to their particular needs We take seriously the call to discipleship and ministering one to another.
HISTORY OF THE CHURCH
Our church was organized August 16, 1868 with 13 charter members. Property was given by Asa and Abner Coffman from their farm and a small church house was built. It soon proved to be too small and a larger church was built.
The members of the congregation selected White Oak Pond for the name of the church because of the nearby pond and the many large white oak trees growing there. This pond played a part in the early history of the church as there was an encampment of Union soldiers by the pond during the Civil War and two or three Civil War soldiers are buried in the White Oak Pond Cemetery.
Over the years, the church has had a number of ministers. Several young men from the congregation have answered God’s call to ministry. We now have a beautiful building, which has had several additions to accommodate the needs of the growing congregation. Descendants of some of the charter members still worship at White Oak Pond Church.
This congregation has come a long way in the past 147 plus years with the people working together under God’s guidance. The members share a bond of closeness and community, which makes the Church’s ministry unique. Today, the Reverend Terry Hansen is the pastor.
