A Bible given to a member of Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church more than 130 years ago has returned to the congregation.
According to an inscription in the book, the Bible was given to John Sterrett on October 17, 1886, by the Pleasant Grove Sunday School.
"Children are tremendously important to this church and to every church," said the Rev. Dr. Garfield Greene, pastor of Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church.
That's the main reason the congregation has spent just over a year and about $200,000 on an addition to the its white frame sanctuary at 310 Pilottown Rd., Peach Bottom.
