First United Methodist Church was founded in the belief that communities must learn to help themselves. Our work is founded on the following pillars of faith:
The early citizens, from which this church drew its membership, dwelt in the fork section of the Pee Dee and Rocky Rivers. Early settlers began having preaching services under a brush arbor. Similar to the one shown to the left. The first church building was built along about 1820. It was built of long logs with a chimney at one end and the pulpit at the other, with hand-made benches and other furniture.
In 1882, this building was built by building contractor , Frank Ivey. The beautiful curved beam ceiling was the talk of the countryside. Builders and engineers came from far and near to see it. Yet in the beginning there developed considerable controversy in respect to the soundness of the idea of a curved beam ceiling.
