Kiokee Baptist Church - Established 1772

We were priviledged to be able to attend a wedding in this church in May 2005. There is no heat and no air conditioning. Unless you can count funeral fans as air conditioning. The wide plank floors and hard rough wooden pews serve as a reminder of life for worshipers over 225 years ago. The grounds here are tree shaded and well manicured.
There are numerous picnic tables and plenty of space for outdoor acitvities. The church is no longer used for weekly services, but, is used for weddings and "homecoming" services.
Kiokee Baptist Church was founded by Rev. Daniel Marshall in 1772 in Appling, Georgia. The Reverend Marshall was an itinerant preacher from Connecticut who worked his way down the East Coast after New England's "Great Awakening" , a spiritual revivial begun in the 1730's.
Kiokee Baptist Church members still meet in Appling but at a modern, new sanctuary.

    A good friend of mine belonged to Kiokee Baptist Church. It's great to see Appling here on VT.

    What a grand church. This area is so naturally beautiful and so "down home" in its ambience. Love it. Great use of extra photos.
