Black Creek UMC - Northeast


  In 1854, in an old Baptist church that had been bought for $70, this church began. The church, as well as the community that grew up around the grist mill on the creek, was named Black Creek in honor of the creek. Rev. T.R. McMichael was the first pastor. In 1919, while Rev. J. D. McCord was the pastor, Black Creek was on the Oliver Circuit, Savannah District, along with Blue Springs, Newington, Lee Memorial, Mizpah, and Oliver. When the Statesboro District was formed in 1963, Black Creek was put on the Newington Charge with Blue Springs, Lee Memorial, and Newington. Rev. Fred Glover was the pastor during this change.
