The 1889 meeting of the Kings Mountain Baptist Association took place at Elizabeth Church (present day: Elizabeth Baptist Church) in Shelby, NC. The introductory sermon was delivered by G.P. Hamrick. The Committee on Temperance recommended that the Association should make an effort to prohibit the sale, manufacture, and use of liquor. This resolution was voted down. The Committee on Education asks for continued support of the Shelby Female College, as well as Judson College of Hendersonville, NC, the only Baptist college in the state that provides equal educational opportunities for both men and women. The Committee on Obituaries reports the death of Mrs. Elizabeth Wilson. Mrs. Wilson, owner of Cleveland Springs, gave the land upon which Elizabeth Baptist Church was built.
