The Historical Notes for the Lambs Chapel Methodist Church 1941
By
Rev. W. D. Archibald

The settlement of Galena Township in LaPorte Co. began in 1833 with the arrival of George W. Barnes. During this year
Whitman Goit, Shubal Smith, Richard Miller, Sylvester James and John Talbot arrived and selected claims and began to make
improvements on them. Added the following year to this list of first settlers were: Daniel Baldwin, Aurea and Basil Sperry,
William Waldruff, Sans H. Austin, Byron Caldwalder, John Morrow, Joshua Jordon, Elijan Bishop, Micajah Jones, John Cooper,
Ephriam Cooper, Jesse, Jones, Oliver Porter, James Paddock, Charles Francis, Joseph Fuller, James Jones, and Abram Purcell.

Among this group of early settlers there was at least one Methodist exhorter, Mr. Shubal Smith. His name is listed in the
Quarterly Conference records for the year 1835. Although his character was examined and passed he apparently asked to be
released from this responsibility for the time as his license was not renewed. The first gatherings for worship were in homes.
Among the homes used was that of Whitman Goit. This class must have flourished, for in 1841 all the neighbors were called together
to erect the first log chapel in the community on land given by Whitman Goit and named for the pastor in charge, Posey Chapel.
The name of Willie Wright appears as one of the class leaders in the Quarterly Conference Reports of 1835, 1838 and 1839.
He is listed as on of the settlers in Galena Twp in 1841 and he doubtless contributed to the religious uplife of the community.

The second church to be built in the township was Mount Pleasant Chapel, erected in 1844.
The Lamb's Chapel Church, which was the next in order was built by popular subscription in 1854.
The land on which the church was built was given by Mr. Oren Lamb.
The Christian Church built a church in 1865 under the leadership of Rev. Caleb B. Davis in the community now known as Heston.

The Lamb's Chapel Church is a frame building. Jasper Packard in his history of LaPorte County describes it as
"about the size of an ordinary school house which is very much resembles", p. 13D. The original site of the church was on the west side of Fail road.
About 1876 the church was moved across the road and was used as a school house through the week and as a church on Sunday.
This arrangement was not altogether satisfactory although it prevailed for several years. In 1887, it was moved back across the road to
its original site, onto land that was deeded by Mr. Nelson Morton. A brick school house was built on the east side of the road where the church did stand.

It is not known who carried the petition for the erection of the Lamb's Chapel Church building, however,
the following were quite influential in the church in its earlier days: Harrison Bishop, Al Pease, Oren Lamb, Calida Preston, Enoch Preston, Joe Stanton,
Charles Carpenter, Isaac Dodd, Theo Fail and James Wilson. The men and their families took the lead in promoting the work
and supported it by their prayer, their presence and their gifts. A ten foot addition was built onto the west end of the church in 1900.
The membership has been loyal and devoted to the church, although it has never been large. The women of the community have worked to help keep
the church going. The Oak Leaf Circle has been a loyal organization in promoting the work of the church since it was organized by Mrs. Calida Preston.
Some of the women who have served in the capacity of president for this organization are: Mrs. A. Pease, Mrs. Harrison Bishop, Mrs. Clair Fail,
Mrs. Calida Preston, Mrs. Lewis Wagner, Mrs. William Wehrley, Mrs. Florence Wilhelm (1939). Following the plan for reorganizing the women's
work in the Methodist Church, after the Methodist Churches united, there is now an active Women's Society of Christian Service of which
Mrs. Ralph Wilhelm was the first president. There were 36 members in the Society.

The Sunday School was organized about 1867 by Uncle John R. Replogle. IT has continued for years and many boys and girls
began their religious instruction there, and have grown to be useful and upright men and women. For the size of the school,
the present staff has been unusually active in improving their work and have responded remarkably well to the opportunities offered.
Some of those who have served the school in the capacity of superintendent are Joe Stanton, Al Pease, Mrs. Harrison Bishop,
William Heald, Lloyd Boles, Elwood Buel, Mrs. Wm. Wehrley, Nicholas Dahl, Mrs. Ralph Wilhelm, and Wm. Wilhelm.

Mrs. Harrison Bishop and Mrs. John Schwader secured subscriptions covering the cost of the fence around the cemetery
across the road from the church. The cost of the fence was $185.22 and it was installed in 1900. In an early day, the cemetery was cared for
by having a work day about three times a year. A cemetery organization was formed in about 1949, which now has charge of the care of the cemetery area.

In earlier days, camp meetings were held in the Hayes Grove on Harry Austin's property. The Methodists held meetings there until the
Free Methodists took over the work at Springville formerly done by the Methodists. Rev. P. T. Shields held a camp meeting in the Sutherland Grove
near where the old Rossburg Church( Church of Brethren) (Dunkard) formerly stood on the Old Michigan Road.

In 1928 a new roof was put on and the church was painted white to preserve the wood from decay. Mrs. A. J. (Belle) Stahl and Mrs. John (Mary) Wilhelm
took care of this expense. It has added much to the looks of the church from the outside. About this time the interior was redecorated and roller shades
bought for the windows. This expense was met by Mr. & Mrs. Borgard, Mr. & Mrs. Chris Shallow, Mr. & Mrs. Frank Blank and Mr. & Mrs. John Schwader.
Mr. Frank Serns gave the church its parlor furnace from one of the school houses being abandoned in Galena Twp in 1930.
