Often-as in 1869-it was without a minister, and when it had one it had difficulty paying him. Often, too, its membership declined to dangerously low levels, or when it remained high enough in numbers was low in spirit. But the church had a core of the active faithful. These included the family of Milton Wright, the man from whom James Holmes's brother John Holmes (and probably James himself, as well as a good many other local artisans) learned carpentry: in fact, James Holmes and Milton Wright at one time served together on the Baptist building committee, the body charged with maintaining and recommending repairs for the sanctuary.

The next day he attended church, had communion, and went dutifully to the sabbath school.
