Carol Taylor, the chairman of the Hunt County Historical Commission, reviews the early history of black churches in Hunt County.  Carol says a former slave, A.J. (Andrew Jackson) Hurdle, was a pastor and one of the original founders of the Clark Street Christian Church in Greenville, which remains very active today.  Hurdle also founded churches in Campbell, Caddo Mills and Lone Oak, and started several schools for black children.

Just as they have for more than three decades, members of Clark Street Christian Church will help provide Christmas dinner to the community Wednesday.

The church has provided free dinners to those who need them every year since 1982.

According to a 2006  Herald-Banner article written by Carol Ferguson, the tradition began when Ernestine Katie Williams had a vision of providing a free Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner to the elderly, the sick and shut-ins who would not have family to visit and would not receive Meals on Wheels that day.

There will be a chance for some Greenville residents to get a free Christmas dinner. For three decades, members of Clark Street Christian Church make sure everyone in Greenville can enjoy Christmas dinner.
