The first Methodists met in a home in Apalachee. They built their first church around 1840 and it was known as Comfort. A new structure was completed around 1857 and the congregation changed its name to Philadelphia. I fine wooden church was built in 1903 and served until destroyed by fire on 13 April 1923. The present structure was built in 1925.

A slab-topped (likely Georgia in origin) table for dinners-on-the-ground is located behind the church, as well as this playhouse which I think is meant to represent Jonah’s whale.
