     Pioneers organized this church in 1874, before incorporation of Flatonia, and erected a frame building in 1878. That was the town's first church, and it was shared with other faiths. The customs of early years included disciplining unruly members or unsound preachers, and holding annual Protracted, or revival, meetings. Services in their own languages were held for German, Bohemian, and Spanish converts. This church has always supported missions and charities. Present sanctuary, second for the church, was dedicated in 1965.
