Haymount United Methodist Church
In the early 1940s, as World War II was raging in Europe and the Pacific Area, the Fayetteville- Ft. Bragg-Pope community experienced an influx of new residents. Similar population shifts were occurring all across America in connection with the war effort. Recognizing this, the General Conference of the Methodist Church adopted the 1944-48 quadrennial theme of Crusade for Christ, with the year 1945/46 designated as the Year of Evangelism. The goal was to build five hundred new Methodist churches in the nation.

It was at this time that a group of Hay Street Methodist Church members discussed the possibility of establishing a Methodist congregation in the rapidly expanding Haymount area of Fayetteville. Under the leadership of Fayetteville District Superintendent W. Lemuel Clegg, a meeting of interested persons was held at the district parsonage, 1019 Hay Street, on September 18, 1945. Two committees were appointed: a building site location committee and a committee to find suitable living quarters for a minister. For more information, please visit our website.
