Mr. Joel A. Martin was a prominent member of Redwine United Methodist Church, and when he passed away in 1970, a portion of his will was bequeathed to the Church. Due to Mr. Martin’s generosity, and the faithful members of Redwine, a new Sanctuary was built in 1974. The new Sanctuary included central heat and air, complete new furnishings, a new organ and piano, and a beautiful new courtyard. Also included at this time was a new fellowship hall, completely furnished with dining tables and chairs that would seat 90 people, and fully furnished kitchen. The new sanctuary, new fellowship hall and the existing educational wing was completely encapsulated with brick exterior at a total cost of $148,000.
