A Message From The Pastor

"We are Family"

One of the things most outstanding about Homer United Methodist is "We are Family!"  Our church is often described as a congregration of God's people who love one another and love him.  We always try to be there for one another in time of need.  We laugh together.  We cry together.  Love abounds everywhere.  "We are Family!"

A real joy of our togetherness is that we want others to benefit from what we experience.  We invite the unchurched and new residents to the community to come and share in true agape love and warm Christian fellowship.  To this end, we open our doors to everyone remembering that all are God's children.   Our church slogan correctly states:  "Where the doors are always open."

It has been my joy and privilege the past 20 years to serve this loving church family as pastor and friend.  I have not known more thrill and satisfaction in more than 50 years in Christian ministry.  These dear people are "family" to my family and me and we could not love them more or be more inspired by who and Whose they are as together we strive to serve Christ and love Him daily.

To God be the glory!
The church’s pastor the past 20 years has been the Reverend James (Brother Jim) McLendon who resides on Sullivan Drive in Homer with his wife (Marilyn) and son (Mike).
A retired minister in the southern part of our state (South Georgia Conference), Homer Methodist is the only church the family has served in North Georgia.  Altogether, “Brother Jim” and “Miss Marilyn” have served Georgia Methodist churches sixty years.
The pastor is a graduate of Emory University and the Candler School of Theology at Emory.  He served on a number of boards and agencies of the South Georgia Conference before coming to Homer.  He has always been active in civic as well as church affairs.
