The Rev. Pete Grayum has been assigned to the Ivy Bluff Methodist Church by the Stones River District of the Tennessee United Methodist Annual Conference. His first Sunday was July 7, 2019. Pastor Grayum brings many years of pastoral ministry serving churches in Southern California, Missouri, Northern Virginia, and now to the Ivy Bluff Church here in Tennessee. He is a graduate of William Jewell College, Midwestern Theological Seminary, with continuing studies at St. Paul School of Theology (UMC).
Pastor Grayum and wife, Sandy, have served in mission ministry in the United States and globally, including Poland, Africa, Mexico and Guatemala. The Grayum's were members of the all-volunteer NOMADS program through the United Methodist Committee on Relief. Selling their home and traveling for three years in a fifth-wheel rig allowed them many opportunities to help people in need. They served primarily doing disaster relief rebuilds caused by floods, tornadoes and hurricanes.
Ivy Bluff Church welcomes the Grayum's to the mission and ministry of the church in this community. Ivy Bluff United Methodist Church is located at 8597 Ivy Bluff Road, Morrison, TN 37357. Worship time is 9:35am, preceded by Bible study at 9:00am every Sunday. All persons are welcome to Ivy Bluff Church.
