History of Parks Crossroads Independent Christian Church

Several churches were organized in Randolph County about 1842. The Rev. Thomas C. Moffitt was instrumental in the organization of these churches. The first church of Parks Crossroads Christian Church was a log structure located on Buffalo Ford on Deep River about 2 miles south of the present church. The church was organized with 16 members. The land for the church was donated by Robert Barer and the land for the cemetery was donated by the Parks families. The frame building was erected in 1880.In 1907 a new church was erected on the present site. The logs were given and sawed by George York at Cox’s Mill. This sawmill was operated by water and was located on the creek of Highway 22. Sunday school classrooms were added to the structure in 1932. The entire church was modernized in 1953. More classrooms were built in 1966. In 1971 the church was veneered, the steeple replaced, and the porch and fellowship hall were added.On New Year’s Eve 1991, the church sanctuary and classrooms were burned leaving only the fellowship hall and some classrooms standing. The present building was completed in 1993 with the dedication service held on May 2 of that year. There is a full size fellowship hall under the sanctuary and classrooms on either side of the sanctuary. The indebtedness was completely paid for within two years of its completion.
