Newspaper Clippings for
8 June 1872
One of the thrifty country churches in our county is the
Congregational church of Millburn, now enjoying the faithful
ministrations of Mr. Homer J. Parker, who is soon to graduate from
the Chicago Theological Seminary. Last Sabbath this church
received nine new members, on the profession of their faith.
Rev. H. C. Hitchcock, of Kenosha, on exchange, administering
baptism and the communion, in place of Mr. Parker, who is not yet
ordained. One of the candidates was baptized by immersion in the
O'Plain, that stream serving as "Jordan" to the people of that
neighborhood. One of the remarkable features of the Millburn
church is that the whole congregation attends the Sunday school
completely filling the house.
