Columbia UMC’s 175th Anniversary


According to Dr. Mike Deaton, pastor of Columbia United Methodist Church, Texas “State Rep. Dennis Bonnen introduced a resolution on the floor of the House recently to honor Columbia UMC on our 175th Anniversary.” 

Fifteen members of the church were in Austin and five of them were at the Speakers desk when the resolution was read.  Young James Sanchez, (standing in front of Rep. Bonnen) banged the gavel as the resolution was passed. Adds Mike, “This experience was a tremendous highlight for our church and a great birthday present as James turned 10 on Sunday.”
