JIM: The founding the United Brethren Church near Ella, 1908
Story recalls time of great revival led by United Brethren ministers in Ella,(Goodin's Crossroads), according just a time when it was badly needed, when Christianity was at a very low ebb
This wonderful newsletter from the Ella community appeared in the News 104 years ago yesterday - January 22nd, 1908.
One of the most wonderful revivals has just closed at the Goodin's School house, near Ella, conducted by Rev.s Boman and Lynn, of the United Brethren Church, of Reber, Casey County, Ky.
Both of these brethren came into the neighborhood finding Christianity at very low ebb, but they went to work zealously, for the cause of God, resulting in the conversion of 18 new born souls, and a mighty warming up of the professions of the different churches, and better behavior was never seen anywhere.
This meeting captured nearly all of the most wicked class of people in the country. It is earnestly desired that the good work begun will not close until all of the wicked is captured. The whole neighborhood is greatly pleased with the result of the meeting, and with the good labor of the two zealous Christian ministers.
At the close of the meeting the United Brethren organized a church with 14 members to start with and 10 additions to the United Baptist church. Both churches are aiming to build soon. We earnestly desire the prayers of God's people everywhere, that our neighborhood may soon be found on higher planes of Christianity and general good.
