Homerville United Methodist Church Centennial Celebration
by Rebecca Mullis on April 30th, 2013

In honor of Historic Preservation Month the Homerville United Methodist Church Sanctuary will be holding its Centennial Celebration Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 11:00 am until noon. Everyone is invited to attend and please stay for the covered dish social afterward at Peagler Hall. For More information please contact Jenny Robbins at 912-599-0204.

The Homerville United Methodist Church is the oldest surviving church building remaining in Homerville. The windows were the first stained glass windows in the county. They were built in England and shipped to St. Mary's by steam engine then to Homerville by train. When they arrived a crowd gathered to watch them being moved from the train to the edifice. Law enforcement was on hand the entire time, thus allowing inmates at the old jail to dig their way out and escape. The inmates were captured in Savannah two weeks later.

Today, the Homerville United Methodist Church has been lovingly preserved. With thoughtful additions having been made in 2009, the church now offers six different Sunday school classes, a church library, a bride's room, two offices, a world-class kitchen, a new fellowship hall, a prayer room, and much more. There is plenty of room for studying Wesleyan Theology, celebrating the life of Jesus Christ, learning God's word, or simply seeking peace. And there's always room for you at:
