Live Oak church has served the community since the late 1800s. Gravity has since taken it’s toll on the church roof and I’m afraid only a strong wind will knock it down.
According to John Ben Pate in his book History of Turner County written in 1933, “About 1850 or 1855, there was a Methodist Church about two miles south of Live Oak Methodist Church… Live Oak Church itself is doubtless a reorganization of this old church.”*
