Hopkinsville S. D. A. History
.
      In 1955 the local Branch Sabbath School was organized into a church.  The charter members were: Guy and Oma Hudgins, Favel Durry, Chester and Camille Maddox, Catherine Moore, Ben and Nora Gray, and Pastor Henry and Josephine Wilmont.
      In July, 1957 when Dr and Helen Rose moved to Pembroke.  The church was meeting in the basement of Chester and Camille Madox's basement.  The first church building was started 1958 on the corner of Canton and Woolridge.  The first services were held by Pastor Henry Wilmont in 1959.  The Hopkinsville Church was dedicated in 1960.  There was a Church School in the back of the church.  Sometimes after church everyone would go on a picnic to the Harold's Farm or out to All Hen's place on Lake Barkley.
      In 1984 construction was begun at 530 Pyle Lane under the leadership of Pastor Jim McConnell.  Most of the church was constructed by church members.  This is still our present location.  Construction was completed under the pastorship of Pastor David Lea.  There was also a Church School in the downstairs of the church.
      We are all thankful for the leadership of the 15 Pastors who have led us druring past the 60 years.
