Steele’s Chapel Christian Church
According to our records Steele’s Chapel Christian Church was established November 12, 1876 as a “free meeting house...to be used for no other purpose than a church”. Originally three denominations met here, Baptist, Methodist, and Christian each having there own regular meeting time. In the early years the congregation met in a building on the backside of the present site. A note taken from a personal ledger dated February 21st 1897, concerning a meeting held by leaders of all three congregations states “This is the way all Christians should work, I think”.
Our records show that in the October of 1930 the Baptist left to eventually become what is now Oak Grove Baptist church, and the Methodist left to attend either to the Corbin church or one on Black Diamond road.
Between 1928 and 1932 a building was erected on the present site. In the 1940’s Sunday school rooms were added, and after many changes were made over the years.
The latest major change came in 2005 when ground was broken for the new building (pictured in the top left corner) where we currently hold services. Since then we have also added a picnic shelter and swings and a slide for the children.
Our current leadership is as follows:
Minister: Andrew Darden
Elders: Todd Childers, George Bates
Deacons: Ralph Childers, Andrew Darden, Charles Marshall, John Snyder
Trustees: Arvin Peace, Ralph Childers, Bill Jones
