Date Founded
 1888
     In the late 1800s, the people of the Hebert Cove community desired to have a church for their spiritual development.  Led by the Rev. J.A. Vincent and Rev. J.F. Marshall, the interested citizens met to determine a location for the church.  Lofty T. Briggs donated an acre of land for the church.  Construction on the new church began early in 1888.  A sanctuary and a parsonage were built by the church members themselves.  Rev. Marshall was the presiding elder at that time, and the churchís first pastor was Rev. Vincent.  
     As the population became more spread out, the congregation decided to relocate to a better site.  Property was exchanged and the building was moved to the new (and current) site.  
     In 1934, a storm damaged the church.  The steeple was destroyed.  Temporary repairs were made at that time.  Later, under the leadership of Rev. James Smith, the church was remodeled to reduce itís size, as the membership had declined.  
How to Get There:
     Take Hwy 167 South out of Abbeville.  After about 8 miles, turn right at a flashing yellow light onto Mouton Cove (Hwy 691).  The church is 1.5 miles down on your right.
