The first church building in Aroma (the village of Aroma Park was then called Waldron) was dedicated on August 14, 1870. Two days before the dedication, the bell purchased for the tower of the new building passed through the city of Kankakee, an event reported by the Kankakee Gazette:
A new bell for the Methodist Church in Aroma passed through this city last Friday. As it passed, our citizens were treated to a sound of its quality, and all gave it a word of commendation. It weighs 650 lbs., 800 with mountings, and was cast by Blymer, Norton and Company of Cincinnati.
That first church building was razed and replaced by the existing structure in 1966. The bell described in that 1870Gazettearticle still rings each Sunday morning from a specially constructed “bell tower” on the front lawn of the current church.
