It is thus one of the oldest methodist churches in this part of Davidson county. At about this same time the first faint rumblings of coming strife Between the states of the North and the hates of the South Over the Issue of slavery began to he distinctly i Ai d. William Lloyd Garrison Wendell Phillips Theodore Parker Henry Ward Beecher or. Channing the famous Boston divine and Many other celebrated abolitionist were ceaselessly crusading to arouse the nation to a militant consciousness of the evils of a system which they regarded As distinctly unchristian. John Aveley the great founder of methodism had pronounced the institution of slavery the a sum of All Villa inies a and the Church both North and South had done much to ameliorate the lot of the Black Man and to discourage the further spread of slavery. I Hurth divided nevertheless the institution became a vexing problem to the methodist episcopal Church. In an Effort to partially solve tile problem in 18 4 4. The Church Wax peacefully divided Aud the methodist episcopal Church. South was organized seventeen years before the great conflagration in internecine War enveloped the brotherhood of states. Cattan became affiliated with the new conference of Southern churches and for fifty years it remained a methodist episcopal Church. South. For a time it prospered As a country Church but shortly after the civil War it began to decline in membership finally dwindling to where regular services were discontinued. The building was neglected and had it not been tor the cemetery the Church might have been aban Dum entirely. In 1898 it was reorganized As a Community Church with four denominations the methodist episcopal South the methodist protestant the missionary Baptist and the lutherans joining to put up a new and larger building. An interdenominational sunday school was organized and Canali Church again became a Center of influence. Gains under the new organization the methodist protestant denomination made rapid gains in membership and soon outnumbered All the other three denominations combined. The Baptist and the lutherans ceased to hold services and the methodist episcopal Church South held Only irregular services. In 1926 the methodist protestant denomination purchased the rights of the three other denominations to the property of Cancun and it remained a methodist protestant Church till 1939 when the three great branches of methodism were United.
