History (taken fromEARLY SETTLERS OF THE K-SPRINGS/CHELSEA AREA, by Shelba Shelton Nivens) I found me a girl today, Young Clifton Kendrick told his sister, Flora, as they walked home from Sunday morning service at Pleasant Valley church close to a 100 years ago. At a service a short while later, he found that the girl, Effie Stone, had noticed him, too. He smiled as he shared the memory a few years before his death in 1981. Effie and Lizzie Armstrong were down praying, and I saw her peeping through the crack in the bench. She asked Who is that boy? She was always shy. Her daddy (George Stone) was hard boiled and wouldnt let me stay at her house after dark. A church house was the place where many young people met -- and courted -- their future spouses in the early days of our community. They socialized while cranking old-fashioned ice cream freezers at ice cream suppers or while standing around a bonfire roasting wieners on forked sticks. Singing Schools Young people, along with the older folks, enjoyed singing schools held in church houses. Several early citizens of the area taught in these schools, using the old shape-note method to teach the rudiments of music. The late Eunice Kendrick Minor, mother of Mickey Griffin who now serves as Director of the K-Springs Church preschool, was one of these teachers. The late Edna Gilbert Moore recalled attending singing school in the early 1900s at a Methodist church, which was located across the road from the site of Chelsea Church of Gods new building. Her family lived about a mile southwest of the church in the older, white house that sets in the bend of the road and has been beautifully remodeled in recent years. From here, she and her sisters walked to the church where she met her future husband. Willis (Moore) taught singing school there, and Winfred (his brother) would be there, she recalled before her death in 1978. She didnt say so, but her tone and her smile implied that she was more interested in seeing Winfred than she was in learning to sing. Church services and regular school classes, as well as singing schools, were often held in the same building. Several early residents recalled that Center Institute was the first school at Chelsea. It was located near the Liberty Baptist Church and its first class, taught by a Mrs. Harper, was held in the church building in 1884. East Saginaw/K-Springs Church of God A few miles southwest of Liberty, in old East Saginaw community, which was located around the junction of present-day Highways 69 and 74, another group of worshippers began meeting in Morris School House in 1904. This little group would become the East Saginaw Church of God, then later the K-Springs Church of God. The founders included several members of the Moore and Kendrick families. Beginning around 1902, the group first met in homes to share the message theyd heard preached by a group of black worshippers who met under the trees. After a Church of God husband and wife evangelistic team came and helped them form a Sunday School, they began meeting in the school house. In 1911, Tom and Louizie Kendrick, parents of Eunice Minor, deeded land to the deacons of East Saginaw Church of God, and the congregation erected a building just across Yellow Leaf Creek (on the eastern side of the creek). However, around 1927 businesses in the town of East Saginaw began to close down as people working in timber-cutting operations moved away with their work. So, the church group moved services to the K-Springs school house. They later bought the building, tore it down and erected a new one about 1936. In 1978 they moved into a new, brick facility across the road (Highway 39). Since that time, additional classrooms and offices, a new kitchen and gym/fellowship hall have been added. (See K-Springs Church of God web site for more information.) Early residents of East Saginaw had a choice of at least two other churches in their area. Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church Mt. Calvary Missionar
