The Journey Began on This Site

With property donated by the Gilder family, the descendants of slaves, including those of the Pinkston and Murdock families, endeavored to establish a congregation that was unapologetically Christian and proud to be AME.

For more than 100 years, MURDOCK! has endeavored to serve the Merry/Mt. Meigs Community of Pike Road as a beacon of Christ’s light in the world. Four generations of these earliest families labor alongside a significant number of “newcomers.”  We are ever seeking to grow God’s Kingdom, spiritually and numerically, one soul and one family at a time. And so, as the Lord leads, won’t you join us as we grow from Great to GREATER!

Our Challenge:
• To fulfill our calling to be Gods people in mission
• To meet the needs of a growing church and community
• To strengthen and enlarge present programs and ministries
• To provide adequate space and equipment for our work
• To grow in our appreciation of responsible stewardship and sacrificial giving
