"The Antioch Congregation was organized as a Christain [sic] Church (Disciples of Christ) in September 1853 by Moses Easterly Lard (1818-1880), Pastor of the Liberty Christain [sic] Church in Missouri. Its first 'Meeting House', a one room building, and one of the oldest in Clay County, was peculiar to the architecture of the day. It was erected in 1859 at a cost of $1800 and used continuously for worship until Easter 1957. A newly built sanctuary was then first used. The 'Meeting House' is still maintained and used for some programs and weddings; on at least one Sunday each year it is used for worship. Commencing in 1885, the Antioch congregation has hosted continuously an annual 'Strawberry Festival'. A Northland Landmark, the Church reorganized in 1930 as a Community Church, has lent its name to the road which runs past it, a nearby Shopping Center and a 'School District' middle school, all representative of its geographical influence. Nearby Davidson Road, like Prather, Vivion and Winnwood Roads, identify some of the congregation's family names historically preserved in the surrounding community."
