LaGrange District



Special Recognitions

In light of the postponement of Annual Conference and the current social distancing guidelines, the Pre-Conference Briefing that was scheduled for this past weekend was cancelled.  In addition to providing information about Annual Conference, that meeting has been an opportunity for us to recognize certain clergy and laity in our district.  More details about Annual Conference will be forthcoming from the Conference in the coming weeks; but in light of the fact that we can’t personally present certificates at present, we want to recognize the following people and churches.

Clergy Recognitions:

As of June 30, 2020, the following pastors who have been serving in the LaGrange District will be retiring.  We wish them well and are grateful for their many years of faithful service to The United Methodist Church:

    Michael McFarlin            Allen Lee/Luthersville
   Jim Dixon                        Andrews Chapel
   Joe Harrington                Manchester First
   Joe Geter                        Powell Chapel        

The following pastors will be leaving appointments in the LaGrange District and moving to other districts:
