“As long as the grass grows and the water flows, this shall be a house of worship,” are the words Edward Keenan spoke when he donated the land for Rehoboth Church, There were regular worship services in Rehoboth until 1871. Although there are no longer regular worship services in the church, Keenan’s words still ring true, each time a church reserves the building for worship or an individual takes some quiet time here.”
