About Us/History


NUMC Church History

Undocumented local history states that the first deed for a Methodist Church in Nash County was issued in 1812 when George Sutton sold a plot for a church in Nashville.  The location is not definitely known, but is thought to be the Empress Boddie lot at the intersection of Washington and Collins Streets.  This church was used for holding religious services some 50 years before being destroyed by fire.


The history of the Nashville United Methodist Church is a success story in every sense of the word.  It has come from a small beginning to the dynamic church which it is today.
