  • About

    A missionary from Boonesville, Mississippi set out to preach under a brush arbor, which was called “Oak Grove.” On split log seats, the community worshiped there until they were later able to build a cabin. After the Methodist Church became part of the Alabama circuit, Oak Grove became First United Methodist Church of Red Bay. The church has grown from logs to an encased brick structure with today’s modern conveniences.
