The former Perkins United Methodist Church and parsonage are up for sale this week. The church had a long history in the Shawboro community, but fell on hard times in recent years. The North Carolina Conference of the UMC last reported that the church had a congregation of 25, but that dwindled over recent years. Though the church has been closed since this past summer, the United Methodist Church denomination as of this writing lists the closed church on its website.

The building and parsonage are currently listed for $179,900 as a package deal and sold as is, with proceeds going to a local UMC church. Keep the sale of these buildings in your prayers that the proceeds might sustain other ministries.
