The mission of Hartwell First United Methodist Church is to be a community of faith through which all persons can come to know Jesus Christ, accept His saving grace, and become faithful disciples, witnessing to God's love in the world.
Dr. R. Allen Stewart was appointed to Hartwell First United Methodist Church in 2003. His gifts of preaching and teaching are being utilized every Sunday and throughout the week as he leads this dynamic and growing congregation. Allen is a devoted husband to his wife Tracey and father to three beautiful daughters, Lauren, Taylar, and Ashton.
His vision for Hartwell First UMC is to be the church that God shall have us be. Nothing more and nothing less. He is called to help persons to find their role in church and thus, in life. He works in the community of Hartwell and Hart County on various community support groups and committees.
