Methodist Church
Not available online
TitleMethodist Church
AbstractWilliam Miles Chick, in his new home built in 1845, held a meeting to consider the organization of a church, with the Reverend James Porter, a local Methodist minister, in charge of the meeting. On a Sunday following this meeting, the Reverend James Porter preached under the shade of some trees near the corner of Missouri Avenue and Walnut Street. At the close of the sermon he requested all who desired to become members of a Methodist Church to come over and sit on a certain log. Those who sat on the log were William Miles Chick, Mrs. Ann Eliza Chick, Mr. & Mrs. James Hickman, Mrs. William Smith, and Mrs. James Porter. That day was organized the Methodist Episcopal Church, south of the Town of Kansas, the first Protestant church in the city. From the Kansas City Journal-Post, June 23, 1928.
