According to church elder Moffatt W. Moore, who in 1928 published a historical pamphlet on the lives of early settlers, they led a primitive existence. Moore wrote of isolation and personal sacrifice, but also noted the settlers showed courage, fortitude, resourcefulness and endurance.

In the spirit of those early settlers, First Presbyterian Church of Dunedin is honoring a number of its longtime members.

Vivien Grant joined the church in 1925, Doris Hinson in 1936, Ben Skinner in 1937, Hazel Kirk and Martha Snow in 1938, Jackie Chalk in 1943 and Marian Davis in 1948.

First Presbyterian has been known by several different names during its history, including Ebenezer Church, Bethesda Church and Andrews Memorial Church.

The church is located at 455 Scotland St., Dunedin. For additional information, call (727) 733-2318 or visit fpcdunedin.org/.
