Winder First United Methodist Church, 280 North Broad St., will celebrate its 185th anniversary Sunday, Aug. 22, with worship services at 8:45 and 11 a.m. Butch Kennedy and Pastor Dave Henson will be the speakers.  The first church was built in 1836 in a one-room log cabin on Hog Mountain Road in Winder, according to church leaders. The first church had two front doors because the men entered sat on one side and the women entered and sat on the other side. In 1963, the church relocated to its present location on North Broad Street.
