At the time of establishment, this church  was in the area known as Marion Co., which is now located in the town of Sulligent. Sulligent was not a town at the time (not until 1887), but this area was included in what was later called Moscow (est. 1832). Today this church stands in the southwestern part of the town of Sulligent, on the Wolfe Rd. (est. 1804). It still exists on the original property purchased in 1823 from Mr. Benson, a church member.
