In December 1862, a group of Austintown residents met to organize a church at the corner of Ohio 46 and Kirk Road, which eventually became the present congregation of the Smith Corners United Methodist Church, now celebrating their 150th anniversary as a congregation. In December 1962, the group moved across the corner to the present building, which had a second addition in 1968 to complete the facility. Now, 50 years from that date, the congregation celebrated this milestone with a service and dinner. Attending were former pastors Dean Roush and Suzanne Hill, as well at Mahoning District Superintendent Dan Bryant who delivered the morning sermon, and the current pastor Dr. Jan Sprague who led the service. Honored at the noon luncheon were three long-term members who exceeded the age of 90. From left, Alma Mitchell, Vada Reel, and Marjorie DeHoff, have been instrumental in the church program for many years.
