Church Building

Our History

Greer Chapel United Methodist Church has been a staple in this community for nearly one hundred years. The site where the church now stands was once the home of a two-room structure built to provide a place where children on Fannin Road could attend school. The two room Carr School was torn in 1919 and the church was built in the same location.

Greer Chapel United Methodist Church was named to honor its first pastor, Rev. Joe Greer. The church was organized and established to be a place where believers could come to worship and praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To gain strength and knowledge needed to grow spiritually.

Our Mission Statement:

“To Teach the Word of God, to Show the Love of God, so all the people can exercise the Power of God through Jesus Christ.”

We believe this statement drives home the mission of our United Methodist denomination: “To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”


Our expression of God’s love in the Flowood community and beyond flows out of our own experience of that love. Ours is a faithful community of believers hungry to know God and to serve the community. When you come to visit, you’ll experience the love of God.

Greer is a comfortable, blended worship atmosphere where the Spirit of the Lord rules. Hymns and contemporary music work together to bring us into the presence of God.

The greeters will welcome you and make you feel at home. Ushers and pew ambassadors will guide you during the service. Suit or jeans, dress or casual–doesn’t matter, you’re dressed for worship.

Church can happen anywhere.  It happens when we create learning opportunities that transform lives. It happens when we create safe environments where children can play and learn. It happens when education makes the path to citizenship a little easier. And when our sacrifices help nourish students’ minds and bodies. That’s putting beliefs into action.
