Piedmont Church of Christ
According to family histories and oral traditions, David Dixon Barfield met Barton W. Stone around 1847 and the men formed the church in Marietta. Their mission was simply using the Bible as the only spiritual guide for becoming a Christian.
The Barfields and three other families chose to be called Christians only. They began meeting together in their homes. After about 3 years, in 1850, they started meeting in a small house which became known as the Liberty Hill church and school.
In 1986 about 9 acres of land was purchased from Lowell C. Ballard, a member of the congregation, on Piedmont Road. At that time, Piedmont Road was two lanes but was in an area with new housing, schools and shopping centers were located nearby. The Olive Street building was sold and the congregation arranged to meet in J. J. Daniel Middle School while construction of a new building was in progress.
The congregation met in J. J. Daniell Middle School from August 8, 1992 until May 22, 1994 when it met for the first time at the current location.
The church offers a variety of adult and youth programs. It also has a Georgia School of Preaching and Biblical Studies that meets January-June and August-December. For more information, visit us on-line at www.gsoponline.org.
