The following is transcribed from the inside part of the front cover.

We are fortunate to have one of the original copies of 'A history of the U. P. Congregation of Four Mile', compiled by the Rev. Josiah Thompson in 1876.

It is being reprinted here in its original form as Part I along with a new section Part II which is an update of the church history from 1876 to 1991.

A number of people have assisted in the compilation of information for this update and we offer "Thanks" to them as well as to Rev. Thompson who felt that such a history should be written of the early church.

Let children hear the mighty deeds
Which God performed of old;
Which in our younger years we saw,
And which our fathers told.

He bids us make his glories known,
His works of power and grace,
And we'll convey His wonders down,
Through every rising race.

Our lips shall tell them to our sons,
And they again to theirs,
That generations yet unborn,
May teach them to their heirs.

Then shall they learn, in God alone
Their hope securely stands,
That they may ne'er forget His works,
But practice His commands.

(78th Psalm, vs. 1-7 I. Watts' Version for hymn)
