Zion Hill Baptist Church left the Green River Baptist Association and was received as a member of the Kings Mountain Baptist Association. The Circular Letter of this meeting was authored by Elder Larkin M. Berry. The following churches were withdrawn from the association due to their rejection of the temperance resolutions adopted during the 1859 meeting: Beaverdam Baptist Church, Bethel Baptist Church, and Sandy Plains Baptist Church.
