According to the booklet produced for the 50th anniversary of the Vermontville Church of the Nazarene, reprised by Floyd I. John in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise on August 15, 2011, as "Time travel to 1935," there were 19 charter members. The small church building at their original site [not specified] was sold in 1954, and the congregation bought the larger Methodist Church of Vermontville. Under Pastor Blair McKim, a two-story wing was added to accommodate Sunday School rooms and offices for the growing congregation. During its 75 years, the church has had 23 pastors and hundreds of members. The Diamond Anniversary celebration was to be held on August 21, 2011.
