Fun Fact: Wiggins Presbyterian Church

From the 100th Anniversary Booklet (2007)

“When the sizzling summer sun arose over Wiggins on July 12, 1907, there was no Presbyterian church in the town, nor had there ever been.  But, there were Presbyterians; devout, faithful, hard-working Christian men and women who had a determination to live for Christ in the tiny saw-mill town.

On this particular day the fervor of Wiggins Presbyterians had reached a new high.  They had just experienced ten days of special meetings which were conducted by Evangelist J.F. Eddins and held in the Methodist Church.  So great was their zeal for God that before the sun set, their mountain top experience was climaxed by the organization of  The Wiggins Presbyterian Church with twenty-two charter members enrolled.  Eighteen were received by letter from other churches, two upon profession of faith and two upon reaffirmation of faith.  Seven children were baptized.”

So the church was born and was destined to become an effective witness for Christ in the community and state.
