Irving area

From Lane Co Oregon

Some of the people from the old Clear Lake Church moved toward Eugene and settled in the Irving district, near what is now Highway 99. In fact, they brought along their building.

An entry from the diary of Hetty McClure Bond reads:

Oct. 29, 1899

The Brothers, Sisters and friends met at Irving on Sunday, Oct. 29, 1899 to rededicate the Christian Church at that place, and raise funds to pay costs of moving the church to that place and repairs on the same all of which was raised by popular subscription. Preaching at 11 o'clock A.M. by D. C. Kellems at 2 o'clock by Morton Rose and at 7 P.M. by Dean E. C. Sanderson . . . ." (Spelling and punctuation of the original have been retained. The quotation is from the History of Irving Christian Church . . . 1853 - 1981.)

The Yearbook of the Disciples for 1888 lists 80 members.
