off line, since somehow somebody was able to break into the Indian Trust
Accounts via the Interior websites & steal a huge sum of money from the

The present church was constructed in 1893. This is the one listed on the
Register last August. The Register tends to use the term "Methodist
Episcopal" for pre-1939 churches, although Bay Shore M. E. became Bay Shore
Methodist in 1939 & Bay Shore United Methodist in 1968 as the various
Methodist groups have re-united. You can get to Bay Shore's page via the
General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church home page
... all U. M. churches with home pages should be accessible via this page.
