The United Methodist Church (UMC) is alive and well in Davie County.

Congregants and guests from the newly-formed Grace Church celebrated America’s independence with a cook-out on July 4 with fellowship, food and desserts.

The group is led by the Rev. Dr. Suzanne G. Michael, and plans are in the works for a permanent meeting place. The new church was formed by individuals desiring to remain connected to the UMC after their previous churches disaffiliated from the worldwide conference.

Michael has pastored numerous churches in Piedmont North Carolina over the last 20 years.  She was recently appointed Davie County UM Emerging Community Pastor.

Along with her work at Grace Church, she will develop and oversee other mission projects in the area. “

“If your church has disaffiliated from the UMC but you feel led by the Lord to remain with a United Methodist congregation, please consider Grace Church,” she said. “All are welcome.”
