    This history is a work in progress and therefore still remains somewhat fragmented. There was a fire where some church records were lost and few people have come forward to be able to rebuild the history of the church. If you or someone you know has information that will help us build a more accurate account of this history, please contact us. Greenville Newspaper records have been helpful, but have several erroneous misspellings of the name Gethsemane as Gathsemnea, Gethsemine, ane Gethsemane.
