Citizens of the village of Chattooga organized Ebenezer Church on August 12, 1836. Charter members included: John McWhorter, Johnathan Fielding, William Henry, Sara Henry, Filis (slave of the Henry's), Andrew L. Barry, Margaret I. Barry, James McWhorter, Temperance McWhorter, Sarah McWhorter, Lidia Dickson, Elizabeth Fielding, Susan (slave of the Fielding's) Abner H. Mize, Mary Mize, Mary H. Smith, Elizabeth Beaty, Isaac N. Swan, and Amanda Love. After Chattooga was rechristened La Fayette (1836) in honor of the Revolutionary war hero, Marquis de La Fayette, the church was renamed La Fayette Presbyterian Church (1841). The present sanctuary was built in 1848. On June 24, 1864, during the American Civil War a battle was fought in La Fayette. The Presbyterian Church was used as a field hospital during and following the battle. In 1883 the church building was repaired from the damage caused during the war. In 1922-1923, the church was rebricked in the cream-colored brick. Thus, the present sanctuary walls are three bricks thick. The basement was dug by the men of the church in 1942. In 1972, a Fellowship Hall, additional classrooms and office space were added to the rear of the old building. The congregation remains an inclusive church with a warm welcome to all.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good, And what does the

Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God, Micah 6:8
