A church commemorative plate has the following information on the reverse:

"The Germantown Church of God was organized in 1870 by Wilson Eyler. In 1871 a festival was held by Rev. Spurrier who served as first pastor. The bethel was built in Frederick County, Maryland and dedicated January 14, 1872. In 1909 an addition was made thereto. In 1932 a building fund was begun, and on August 10, 1947 ground was broken at a new site several hundred yards from the old building. On May 23, 1948 the corner stone was laid. On Septemeber 11, 1949 the new building was dedicated. Rev. Clarence McGaha serving as pastor. The Lord hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad."
