Religious services were held in one of the log cabins on the very first Sunday after their arrival (settlers), and the Sunday and midweek services in the Welsh language have been constantly and faithfully maintained for 58 years. The jubilee year (1898) was celebrated by the dedication of a $20,000 church which is a fine church building.
As the neighbors increased in number and the borders of the settlement widened, the distance became too great for the farthest away to worship at Salem Church in Venedocia (Salem Welch Calvinistic Methodist Church), so branch churches were established,-- Zion, in York township, and Horeb, in Jennings township -- at both of which points the old churches have been replaced with fine new buildings of brick and stone, erected within this 20th century.
