Mr and Mrs George Barber. To no two people is more credit due for the success of the new church than to Mr and Mrs George Barber who have given so liberally of their time energy and substance. From the day the old church was moved for its foundation and the first ground broken for the new one, George has devoted his time exclusively to superintending the building. Born into the Christian church, they have never known any other faith and their lives have always been in accordance with the faith they have professed.
