Biographical / Historical
Located just across the Tennessee-Kentucky state line around Oak Grove, Kentucky, the Euergesia Christian Church is believed to have been built in the 1840s. Prior to this the Disciples of Christ congregation shared a building with the Salem Baptist Church. The two groups clashed over doctrine, and the Disciples decided to build their own building on land donated by a man named Garret Meriwether. Although the congregation was small, it continued to operate until around the early 1900s. The building is no longer standing.
