United Methodist Church
North Georgia Conference
With more than 800 churches, 1,300 clergy members and 360,000 lay members, The North Georgia Conference is a regional body of The United Methodist Church and is headquartered in Atlanta. Each year, laity and clergy of the conference gather for business and worship at the North Georgia Annual Conference.
You can join by one of three ways:
- Transfer of letter (you have been a member of another church)
- Profession of faith (you have been baptized but haven’t joined a church)
- Profession of faith and baptism (you haven’t been baptized or joined a church)
Plan to attend “Discover DUMC,” an introduction to our church and our United Methodist denomination. Led by Rev. David Melton, you’ll learn about what we do, why we do it, what we believe and how to get involved. Sessions are held throughout the year. We also offer quarterly tours of the church. We would love to know you are coming, but reservations aren’t required.
For information on joining the church, attending Discover DUMC or taking a tour, contact one of our Hospitality Coordinators: Anne Horton (770-394-0675 ext. 128 or email@example.com) or Jenny Rolfes (770-394-0675 ext. 128 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
In 1935, Eull Spruill donated a team of mules and laborers to excavate the site of the new church on property across the street from the one-room building. Construction was completed in 1941. Today, this “new” church serves as our Chapel. In 1950, 60 members came together to build a new three-bedroom parsonage in just nine hours. A Fellowship Hall, education wing and youth activity building were added to the campus in 1964.
Membership continued to grow, with 2,000 members on the church role by the late 1960s. The third Sanctuary came in 1972 when a modern 750-seat Sanctuary was built adjacent to the Chapel. Thanks to a generous gift from the family of Stephen Thomas Spruill, the Chapel was totally renovated in 1977 and today serves as an intimate worship setting.
