137    NEW BETHEL BAPTIST CHURCH

      Location - on Old Creedmoor Rd (SR-1831) at the intersection with Viceroy Dr. and near Carpenter Pond Rd (SR-1901).

      Coordinates: 35d 57m 58.9s N; 78d 42m 38.1s W Click here for Google maps

      This was formerly known as Oakwood Grove Baptist Church in the Rogers Store community.

      Surveyed by Cathy Moore in Jun 1998. Church and cemetery appeared to be abandoned. New survey by Mrs. Deborah Scott Spencer in October 2009.

      Notes 1998: This church and grounds have not been used regularly since 1992. The guest book is still located inside the door of the church with the last signature dated 1992. The church is fully furnished with the Bible open to the book of Daniel and the pages yellowing. The cemetery is in very bad shape. Some of the headstones look as if the ground has eaten them. It appears somebody has moved some of the graves to more open land. Some of the graves are in the midst of a wooded area underneath a gorgeous Magnolia tree. There were 17 graves marked by a stone. Someone had put a stick with a red marking flag on it at each of these graves. There is a huge pile of gravel close by. Some of this gravel was used to cover the newly moved graves. 2 old headstones were unreadable. There were 2 unreadable funeral markers.

      Notes 2009: This is a very old church. Cinder blocks have been added to support the original stacked stone foundation. New grave markers and more clearing out have occurred since 1998. The doors to the building are not open as indicated in 1998. The church appears to be in use and the sign posts church times, etc.
