Lyle Church town of For the congregation of the South Union Church in Maywood, it was a time of celebration, and of worship. The 129-resident members were joined by about 50 visitors this weekend for the celebration of a century and a quarter as a ,Baptist Church. According to a history compiled by Clara Frances Wiseman, South Union was chosen as a name because, when it was founded in 1860 with 65 members, it was located in the South part of Union Township. The church had originally been located about one mile northeast of it's lesent site in Maywood. Even as early as 1871, the church had an organ. Until 1872, the town proper did not exist except for the church, a school and a cemetery. The advent of the railroad brought rapid growth to Maywood. The current location of the church was determined in 1893. The compiled history lists South Union Baptist Church as the only one Maywood has ever had, and said both whites and blacks have attended it, though there are no blacks in Maywood at the present. In 1953, Rev. Bual Bales' leadership brought the start of excavation of a basement for a kitchen and Sunday School dasses.-Rev. Bales was one of two former pastors present Sunday and gave the address in a special anniversary service Sunday afternoon. Many of the parishioners Sunday, as they had done for the centennial celebration in 1976, attended the church service in dress of early years, with the women wearing long skirts or dresses, aprons, and bonnets. The men wore dark pants, ribbon ties, white shirts, and several wore vests. "We're just trying to relive the time as nearly as we could," said the current pastor of the church, Lyle Chappell, of the early days' attire. "But it's still a time to worship." In addition to Rev. Bales, Rev. Tulley Achord, who in the morning service said he'd given the message 24 years ago at the 101st celebration of the Church, was also present. "Rev. Bales' wife, and former pastor wives, Mrs. Monroe Hopkins and Mrs. Mary Renard, were present as were Rev. Lyle and Barbara Chappell, the present-pastor and wife. Rev. Achord told the morning congregation he had recently had the privilege to preach to the Cherokee Indians. "I told them (the Cherokees) I was there because I loved them and it's true. I'm here today for the same reason, I love you, and want you to hear this messq e Achord said.
