At the Texas Annual Conference session on Saturday, Dec. 3, delegates voted to ratify the disaffiliation of 294 churches, Marvin included. This was the last step in the process. On Jan. 1, 2023, Marvin will be known as Marvin Methodist Church, a Global Methodist Community.  

Signage, hymnals, e-mail addresses and our website address will be in transition over the coming weeks.
