Mt. Calvary Baptist Church was organized March 1926 in the home of Fess and Flora Young. G. E. Hogue, Moderator of the Gold Hill Association presided over the meeting. The Moderator then called for those who had letters. They were Fess Young, Aaron Harris, Eddie Price, Washington Akridge, and William Matthews. Rev. Hogue read the covenant and articles of faith, and then declared the church properly organized. Brother Fess Young motioned to name it Mount Calvary, and it was adopted. The doors of the church were opened to join on Christian experience. Those who joined were Lillie Price, Lizzie Moon, Flora Young, Lucy Spear, Rosa Mae Spear, Janie Matthews, Fannie Williams, Marton Mumford, Thomas Spear, and Ada Young.
