Old Church Bell guards another piece of Nazarene history

About: The rest of the story of Church of Nazarene Church Bell

By Nicole Legg

Here's some information from the church dedication bulletin in December 1973:
"On October 10, 1923, The Church of the Nazarene was organized in Columbia, KY, by the Reverend J.W. Montgomery as District Superintendent. Reverend Eckhart was the first pastor of the church.

"The old building which was bought in 1924 from the Church of the United Brethren in Christ burned down in 1947. The block building at 308 Jamestown St. was built and dedicated in 1948 with the Reverend Robert Altman as minister."
In regards to the bell, it currently guards another piece of church history. Sealed under the bell is a time capsule that contains lots of the church's history. - Nicole Legg
