Prosperity ARP Church burned to the ground on Christmas morning 1970. The church history and records were destroyed also. Shorthly thereafter, the congregation built a new brick church on the property. At some later point in time the church became a part of the Presbyterian Church of America and is still serving a strong ministry in the community.
