Could our brand new old church be your next call? We were a 208 year old
United Methodist Church until September 26, 2022, when we disaffiliated from the denomination and became an independent congregation of faith. We have asked our Lord, Jesus-The Christ, for a new flock-leader. Is He leading you to give us a closer look as Your Call to ministry? We are located in Shelby, NC, about half-way between Asheville and Charlotte, NC and about 60 miles north of Greenville, Spartanburg, SC. Before leaving the denomination, our attendance had declined to about 35 per Sunday, but since then, our Lord has blessed us with returning members as well as
new folks-increasing our attendance to close to 60 and we continue to grow each week! Our ministry team had declined to a single pastor, but in the past 2 months the Lord has added three new paid staff to the ministry team; a Minister of Music/Worship Leader, a church musician/accompanist, and a new church Office Administrator! Also, a new volunteer Youth Leader will start this month! Are you the one He has willed to lead us to our next place in His Kingdom? We have a large physical plant with a large, beautiful sanctuary, fellowship hall, kitchen, remodeled restrooms, offices, classrooms, parking, recreation area, and playground. Our county is preparing for a housing expansion including one 400 Town-home Subdivision across the street from the church. If our Lord is providing
you some vision for how you would lead us in these coming times, we want to talk to you. Please contact us and let’s begin to pray and share how our Lord may lead us together.
