Congregation founded 1801. Services held, uninterrupted, except for a Sunday in Nov. 1862, because of "Army passing down the pike and the house having sick soldiers in it." Called "Difficult" and located near Big Difficult Cr. whose name chosen because fords on creek were hard to predict. By 1810 permanent church built and renamed Bethlehem.
