In 1847, the question of slavery was becoming the most vital issue in the United States and its importance penetrated into this small community. Ohio, a free state, was a stepping stone from Kentucky to Canada. Many fugitive slaves sought freedom and Weymouth, with its decided abolitionists helped more than one slave to freedom. This little Church took a stand on the subject of slavery and its resolutions were adopted on September 7, 1848. It was the only church in the county to take a stand against slavery. Because of the strong abolitionist stand of Weymouth Church, the Presbytery of Medina County dissolved relationship with the First Congregational Society of Weymouth.
In 1920, the name of the First Congregational Society was changed to Weymouth Community Church. The original meetinghouse, with its simple and stately design set near the road, reflects the strength and endurance left it by the pioneer founders. It is a fitting monument that reflects their beliefs and a sacred trust for the present members to carry to the new home in____________________Church
