Edenton UMC

Edenton United Methodist Church is shown last week. Earlier this month, the church narrowly voted not to disaffiliate from the greater United Methodist Church.

Edenton United Methodist Church is facing a split from within.

The vote was in response to a recent impasse among Methodists across the country in regards to the ordainment or involvement of individuals identifying as LGBTQ.
