  Rev. John Ruppe was pastor of the Cherokee Creek Baptist Church in 1879-1880.
  Cherokee Creek Baptist Church, Gaffney, Cherokee County, South Carolina On July 24, 1879, a group of people met at a brush arbor for the purpose of establishing a new church. Twenty-eight enrolled their names. On August 10, 1879, the group appointed a moderator and elected a clerk and deacons. The official organization of Cherokee Creek Baptist Church took place on August 22, 1879. The charter members coming from other churches were: From Mt. Pleasant Anna Ruppe, and Mary J. Ruppe; from New Pleasant William Horton and Mary C. Horton; Margaret Taylor (church unknown), from State Line John L. Moore and Sarah E. Horton; from Macedonia D. D. Blanton, M. T. Phillips, Marcus Bridges, Sarah Moore, Lewis Henderson, William P. Self, and Charlotte Self; from Camps Creek H. E. Ruppe, J. D. Ruppe, W. T. Humphries, J. L. Ellis, A. B. Ruppe, Josiah G. Ruppe, Anna Phillips, Sarah Ruppe, Mira Green, Elizabeth Harris, Mary J. Ellis, Elizabeth Ruppe, Rebecca Helton and Missouri Hammett. Joining by experience were J. S. Hammett, E. Horton, Wm. Bright, Sarah E. Davis, Mary E. Ruppe and Jane Harris. On this same day, these new Christians were baptized in the pool near the old Furnace Pond and received the right hand of fellowship at the house of G. W. Rollins. These men and women that joined together to create Cherokee Creek Baptist Church were farmers living in a sparsely populated community. Their transportation was by horse and buggy, mule and wagon, horseback, and walking. They did not object to walking miles to church on dirt roads for the services that were held one weekend a month. The church would meet at two o'clock on Saturday for a message by the pastor, the receiving of new members, and a business meeting. On Sunday, there would be another "preaching service." From this humble beginning, Cherokee Creek Baptist Church has grown into a church with 508 resident members. In contrast to the original members, their livelihood is diverse and no one walks to services which are held twice on Sunday and on Wednesday night. (Refer to the Weekly Bulletin and Monthly Calendar for a listing of services and activities.) [Source: History; Cherokee Creek Baptist Church; online: http://www.cherokeecreek.org/history.htm]
