The Church Council provides for planning and implementing a program of nurture, outreach, witness, and resources in the Mount Comfort United Methodist Church. It also provides for the administration of its temporal life. It envisions, plans, implements, and annually evaluates the mission and ministry of the church. The Church Council functions as the administrative agency of the Charge Conference between Charge Conference sessions. Chairs of each of the other boards and committees also have voice and vote on the Church Council.
Over 100 years ago, in 1888, Mt. Comfort United Methodist Church was established in its present location, although the roots of the church began 60 years earlier.
The ancestors of our founders set out in 1840 on a grand mission, to bring the word of God to the community by providing a house of worship. From log cabin, to wood frame to brick, down through the years, through joy, tragedy, depression and prosperity, from one generation to the next, the members of Mt. Comfort have accepted the same promise, to keep this church, in the words of our founders, as a place of divine worship.
The church has changed physically, but the spirit remains the same, for the spirit is God's and the church belongs not to us, but to Him.
