Reverend I. J. Yancey was elected pastor in 1935 and served for twenty-five years. The membership marched into their new, well built, brick veneered, well lit, beautifully finished church the first Sunday in November and had it paid for before the close of the year. The church was involved in mission, youth activities, auxiliaries, choirs (A. B. Jennings was organized), anniversaries, revivals, and Men’s Day and Women’s Day. Many deacons were ordained, and trustees began to serve. On September 11, 1960, Reverend Yancey died.
