The Lake Hamilton Church began in 1994 with an eight member bible study meeting at Clyde “Sug” and Kathleen Wilson’s living room in Hot Springs. In 2002, Edward Hollenbeck, the church’s first full-time pastor was retained, and construction began at the church’s current Airport Road location by Sug Wilson, Charles Atkinson, Richard Erck, Glenn Quade, Aaron Watson, Cliff Williams, and Billy Porter.
