The Forsyth United Methodist Church began as a dream of a small Bible Study group in 1978. The dream became a reality in 1979 with the church being chartered with 48 members. No stopping these people of spirit! To help finance much of the church building, its altar furnishings, railing and light fixtures, its members built them. On July 1, 1980, only one year from chartering, 200 people gathered for the Service of Consecration. They didnít stop there! In 1982 they added Sunday School rooms, a Fellowship Hall and kitchen; 1987 brought the purchase of the parsonage and an organ. As the church entered the 21st century, continued dreams were brought into reality. A larger sanctuary, more Sunday school rooms, a sound and choir room, a library, more offices, meeting areas, a larger nursery, a foyer with a comfortable seating area are now available to all members.
A large memorial stained glass window looks over a garden meditation area, as well as the stained glass windows greeting church family as they enter the sanctuary. The dreams and improvements have continued with a new and larger nursery and extended Sunday school area.
Many Habitat Groups actually live at the church while working on homes in the area. The Family Life Center has been opened for use to many community functions as part of the Community Outreach program. With showers and a new larger improved kitchen, it is accessible to church family and community groups alike. It is used by a Boy Scout Troop and other community organizations.
As Forsyth United Methodist Church grows, so grows their spiritual life living the churchís
Making disciples of Jesus Christ, by connecting to God, connecting to each other, connecting to ministry and connecting to the lost.
