History: Prosperity Christian church, organized by Elder John Ramsey in 1843, with thirteen members, now has a membership of thirty-two (in 1884). Elder Ramsey was succeeded by Elders Proctor, Miller, Smith, Pennell, Jacobs, Cooper, McDaniel and Garland. Cooper and Garland are at present officiating. This church has a good house of worship, but being environed by mountains, its membership must remain small.
