An overdue thank you for a Christian act of kindness that occurred 126 years ago will take place Sunday. First United Methodist Church on Main Street will recognize its neighbor, First Presbyterian Church, for its compassion.At 10:50 a.m., the Methodist Church congregation will walk across the street and hold services at the Presbyterian Church to commemorate and say thanks for an act of charity that happened in 1886. “Back in 1886, our Christian Presbyterian neighbors opened the doors of their church to a congregation of wet, mud-splattered and exhausted Methodists,” said Dr. Neil Schultz, a member of First United Methodist.
