When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.” And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had seized them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
(Mark 16:1-8 ESV)

The Rev. & Mrs. J.N. Wagenhurst
Pastor from 1897 – 1900
“Rev. Wagenhurst was installed on November 30, 1897. The following April, the session reviewed the rolls and found only 88 active members. On November 11, 1900, the minister asked the congregation to remain after the service. At that time he asked them to release him from his duties here that he might accept a call to a larger church.”
