Greenwood, Miss., 2-23-1892, to whomsoever this may concern, the McKinney Chapel Missionary Baptist Church, which has undertook to build themselves a House of Worship on the eastern portion of Greenwood, did collect during 1891, $567.30, all of which has been used on payment of lot, building and Pastor's salary, less $31.50, which is in the hands of the ex-clerk of the church, and we are yet in need of money, lumber and shingles to finish our new begun House of Worship, and in order to have the friends of the cause give, the Church has asked me to visit the citizens and solicit what I could for them. Now I'll say I am the only one appointed by the Church to ask for money, lumber or shingles. I'll faithfully apply all that is given for this cause. Remember, The Lord Loveth the Cheerful Giver. Dear readers, what is your share? We need $500.00 more in order to get into the house. I will be around to see you.
A.C. Campbell, Pastor
From The Delta Flag, February 26, 1892
Members of McKinney Chapel, Colored Baptist Church, are inviting everybody to attend the revival services now being held. Rev. J. W. Williams, of Clarksdale, is preaching and Madam Pruitt Anderson is singing. She is one of the greatest gospel singers of this day.
