Serving the communities of Prescott-Russell

 

PRESCOTT-RUSSELL CHURCH OF GOD is the continuation of a vision that began over 100 years ago.In 1860ís a great revival sweep through western Prescott county starting in a small hamlet just south of Maxville (now known as Dominionville).Along its path this little church house was built to accommodate the newly converted worshippers living and working in Riceville.In the 1930ís, when the CPR was expanding to the agricultural communities in eastern Ontario, the train station missed Riceville for the more favorable location of Plantagenet.Slowly the commerce in Riceville began to relocate to the better transportation hubs in Plantagenet.Late in the 1940ís the Christian community that meet in Riceville was all but gone forcing the building to be used for worldly functions.Our building was used as a bank, dance hall and finally a community center.It was abandoned and left crumbling from about the mid 1960ís until it was rediscovered and put back into useful service for the Lord Jesus Christ by Christian pioneers associated with in 1988.
