The Second Congregational Church. 



,A^T^\H1^ opening of the Western, — now tlie I'.oston and Albany, — 
I Railroad about tlie year 1.S38, created a new village center at 

the station. JUisiness and i)0])ulation increased rapidly ; the 
old Centre began to show signs of age ; the village of '1 horndike was 
becoming a power in social and civil affairs, and as a natural result each of 
the two new \illages claimed a right to special religious i>ri\ileges. 

In 1S47 an amicable disision was effected, Rev. Moses K. Cross' 
remaining with the mother church, and fifty-four members withdrawing, 
with a \ iew of forming a new church at the I)e])Ot \'illage. The Second 
Church was organized April 1, 

1847, by an i^cclesiastical Council 
called for the purpose, with a 
membershij) of fifty- se\ en, which 
number was. increased to sixty- 
nine before the close of the year. 
For nearly a year the church 
had no j^astor, but the desk was 
supplied by Re\'. Dr. ]<]ly of 
Monson, and others. In |anuar\, 

1848, the church by unanimous 
vote extended a call to Mr. 
'1 homas Wilson to become its 
pastor, and on i'eb. 29th he was 
ordained and installed pastor. 
Mr. Wilson was born in Paisley, 
Scotland, June 15, 1822, and came 
with his father and family to 
Lowell in 1829. He fitted there in the high school for college, graduated 
at Dartmouth in 1844, and at Andoxer Theological Seminary in 1847. He 
remained with the church in Palmer until |ul\- 1, 1852, when he asked for 
a dismissal on acccjunt of ina<leciuate sunixjrt.

])ra\'er : no others were e\pei ted to lake a part. Hut a^ il to atone in 
some measure for the formal i)ra\er meeting, the l\e\. I )o( tor was a 
fre(|uent \isitor among his parishioners, and carried jon wliere\er lu' went 
by his genial ])resence and words of c lu-cr. Mr. hulleiton had broken 
away from the stere()t\']ied past and iiitiodui ed a new order ot things ; not 
only the male ])ortion, but the gentler melnber^ were urged to lake an 
active part in the praver meeting. 1 his wa> a great innovation, but the 
church enterecl into the spirit ol it with great beiielil to all concerned. ■ 

In former times it had not been ihouglil wise to urge the youth to 
become members of the church, much less for them to take an active 
])art in public worship, but the change for their beiiel'it in our church has 
been a progressive one. At I'irst it was thought that the Sundav school 
was doing all that could be expected, but at la^t the \ oimg reojtle's 
Meeting was establisiied, lecl b\ some one espec lallv adapted for the work ; 
then came the b.ndeavor Soc iet\', the best of ,ill, which >oc iet\ is now the 
hope of the church ; then followed the |uiiior I jideaxor Societv, the grand 
results of which the future \ears alone can tell. I nder our present pastor 
the methods for work in all departments have been broadened, and plans 
laid Un better work than ever belore, whicli, with (lock.-, blessing, must 
tell for good. 

Our church has loiv^ been noted tor its encouragement of legitimate 
intellectual eitorts in other lines, outside- ol strictl\- religious work. And 
this is right, for the mind sliould be torlilk'd with a lorrec t knowledge of 
historv, science and ]ihilo>oph\', which, willi spiritual experience, goes to 
make the complete intellec tual man and woman. .\o Christian, who can 
command the opijortunitv , ought to pleacl ignoranc e of the leading matters

THE CHURCH EDIFICIE. 

When the churi h was fust ori^ani/ed, meetings were helil in McCiih ray's 
hall in the Depot \illage, then just starling into life and acti\it\. It soon 
l)ecame apparent, howe\er, that a more commodious place was imperatively 
needed. '\'wo ri\al sites were offered as gifts on which to build a chur( h ; 
one 1)\ Col. C\rus Knox, near the present Ridge's l-'ooil factory, and the 
other 1)\ Capt. .\. N. Dewey, and the latter was chosen. As early 
as Oitolier, 1840, a jiaper had been t ire ulated for the jiurjiose of ol)taining 
subs( liplions to 160 shares ul stock at S25 per share, for the building of a 
( hurc h. In a short time the whole amount was taken and about .82500 
paid in. Ihe stockhoklers were to rent tlie churt h to the society at a rate 
of not more than 8 per cent on the cost thereof, whiih amount was to 
l)e disided as a dividend among the stockholders. 

'Ihe corner stone of the church was laid with approjiriate ceremonies in 
the month of May, 1847, by Rev. Dr. K\y of Monson. 'Ihe ( hurch was 
dedicated Wednesday, December 22(1, of the same year, " to the worshipof 
Ciod, by appropriate solemnities, \ iz :— Inxocation and reading of the

exercises were exceedingly inlereslinij, and an nddilional /est \va^ i;i\cn to 
them from the fac-t that thoy occurred on a da\ hallowed \)\ such 
sacred association to every lo\cr ^\ the I'uiiiaus. 1 he ^crmon on I'salm 
96 : 6, 'Honor and majesty are before Him, >lrcn;4di and l)caut\ aic in His 
sanctuary,' was characterized by that bold, xi^orous and nianh' slvle for 
which the i)reaclier is distinu,uishcd." 

The comiKiny, called "'llie I'alnier 1 )e|)ot ( hurch ("orporalion," which 
was outside of the chuich soc iety, had incurred somclhiiiL; of a ckbl in the 
erection of the church, and in 1S5:; the buildinL; was ^old at auction to 
satisfy a claim and was bid off by I). F. Mc (iiUrav for Sj4c;5. In 1854 
the church was |)urc based by the ]']cclesiaslic al Society, b\ whom it has 
since been owned. 'Ihe original cost of the- c hurch was issooo. Jn 1870 
the church was thoroughly remodeled at a c o^t of nearK' SSooo, and w is 
rededicated February 23, 1S71. A few ^ear.^ later a ]>\]>c organ was [lut m 
i by subscription at a cost of 51500. In iSSo the un>iglitl\ \eslr\ was 
remodeled and ])ut into tasteful shape at a < o>t ot about SSoo. In iSjIj a 
jiarsonage was erected on the c hurch grounds, at an e\i)ense of S4000. In 
1889 substantial sidewalks ai>proaching the c liurc h and parsonage were 
laid down, and paicl for by funds de\ ised by the late Mrs. Maria Warner of

OUR COURSE 01- BIIJLE STUDY. 

AliDI'l MM SI'.l'Th.Ml;! K, 1 S94. 

Our pastor has formulated a course of study for our Sunday School, 
which has attracted no little notice from the press and others interested in 
such matters. The editor of the Religious Herald says, in calling attention 
to the article on C.raded Sunday Schools by Rev. F. K. Jenkins, that it 
presents "many important and practical improxements in Sunday School 
work." Rev. A.ldison I'. I'oslcr, D. 1 )., says, in the Advance: "The 
Sunday School of the c hurc h at I'almer, Mass., of which Rev. Frank K. 
Jenkins is the efhcient iKistor, is pro])ably the first in the land to adojjt

The music department of the church scr\ ice (leser\es more than 
a passing notice, t\)r it is an important factor in \\(ir>hip. An a matter 
of course a choir was formed soon alter the ( liun li \\aN orL;ani/ed. Ahner 
Allen was the first chorister, an(^ sustained diat position from iS); to iS:^o. 
This was the time when stringed instrumcntN were emplo\ed in the 
choir, and the few sur\i\ing memliers oi our so( iei\' who woishipiied at 
that period recall the fact that James iJuinham pla\ed the clouhle 
bass \ iol, Horace Clark, single bass, !•",. U.Shaw aaid John Allen, \iolin>. 
Dr. \Vm. Holbrook was nnisic al director from 1X50 to 1 Sdo. lli^ choir 
numbered about forts' singers, the -^ur\i\lng members oi which are 
Mrs. Holbrook, Mrs. K. brown, MrN. 1 . I.. Child, .Mr>. J. S. l.ooini>, 
Mrs. (leorge Robinson, James burnhani and 1). W . Mason. At that lime 
the choir was located in the rear ol the audience. It was the 1 )oc tor's 
frecjuent custom to in\ite the \-oung people to engage in singing 
exercises during the week, b\- which means a knowledge' of music was 
de\elope(l and fresh material funnelled for the large choir. In 1S5J the 
viols and \iolins were discarded lor a melodeoii. Neither leader ncjr pl.iycr 
receixed compensation in those days ; but at the c lose of his decade ol 
service, the Doctor was taken bv surprise at llie c losi- of the ser\ ice one 
Sal)bath e\ening by the presentation of a lai'^e famih' IJible and a siKer c up 
on the behalf of the congregation, as a ttslimonial of regard. I'rior to 
that Charles Knight, now an M. D. in IVi'kskill, N. \'., was presented with 
a silk hat by Major Morgan, lor his iailhlul ser\ice at the melodeon. 
In due time the melodeon ga\e [ilace to a small or^aii, wiiich furnished 
instrumental music until the present pijie organ was procured. Charles 
Breckenridge succeeded Dr. Holbrook as direclor of music- and organist, 
for which he recei\ed about forU' dollars per \ear as compensation. 
As recalled, his successors were Al\in Hastings, 11. 1'. II olden, lerre Diitlon, 
(). 1.. Slader, benn Tyler, W. 1'. .Miller, C. I'. Orcutt, C. .\. lirown, 
.Mrs. 11. K. iluntley and .Mrs. kufus h'Unt. During these \ears the 
make-uj) of the choir has \acelated between the c horus and i|uartelte, but 
has always maintained a high degree of e\c ellenc e.

Intellectual Life of Our Church. 



^ "^ T'Hll.M the Siiirilual lite of cmtv rhurch is the Hrst and most 
\^' \/ important factor to he lostered, )et the \ery next tiling to 
be considered and encouraged is intelHgence hv means of 
hheral eihication furnished by (jur higher institutions of learning. The 
founders of our churih ditl not all ha\e the achantages now atfordcd for 
learning beyond the common school, but thev were men and women of 
strong lommon sense and of more than a\erage ability. Their descend- 
ants, and the more recent members of the church and Sunchiy School, 
ha\e been more fortunate in some respects, in that they live in a time 
when broader a\enues ha\e opened lor intellectual de\elopnient. 

The tcnvn high school has been ele\ated to a higher plane, and the 
lesser schools base arisen in sym|)athy with it, by which means the youtliful 
mind has been ipiickened and gi\en an imi)etus not known to former 
da\s, so that in the two last dc( ades we count the college, academic and 
high school graduates irom our society by scores, as against the meager 
few in all former years. 'I'he number of those who ha\e been connected 
with our churih or Sunday school who ha\ chad a collegiate, academic 
or high school education is <|uite notable, so it has been thought best to 
gi\e a list, which has been made as complete as possible ; if any names 
iia\e been omitted, it has not l)een intentional, but for want of knowledge 
of the fact. 

iNearlv all whose names appear in the following lists were gratluates, 
sa\e a few who were educated before the s\stem of graduating was 
adopted in academies and high schools, or in a few instances where a 
full ( ourse of studv was not taken for some good reason.
