windowThe West Barre UMC is now 175 years old, and the present plan seems to have been the best. It has the approval of many proven years of harmonious and successful work. It would doubtless be a serious thing to interrupt this tested scheme with another plan of work. In many of the years the circuit work extended to the schoolhouses, which were within the circuit. In earlier times, services were held in the Stone schoolhouse, the Brick schoolhouse, and the Pine Hill schoolhouse, while in the memory of many, such meetings as those held in North Oakfield under Daniel Clark are still cherished because of the mighty working of God among his people. May the charge always be ready and watching for these golden opportunities of carrying the good tidings of great joy to every neighborhood within its borders.
