I grew up in Marion. The Methodist Church is the church that I was a member of all of my childhood and early adulthood. I got married in the Chapel and my daughter was married in the Church Sanctuary. I have very fond memories of it and I go by there every time I go to Marion. I also take a picture of it each time I visit. No matter where I go or live, Marion will always be my home!
