Where do Methodists live?

Check out this map showing the population of Methodists across the US. In Mississippi, the lowest one of darkest counties on the East part of the state, that is Kemper county, home of Coy UMC where I pastor.

Our county is one of few counties in Mississippi where a large number of the population is Methodist. But at Coy, a good many people (probalby at least 40-50%) come from Neshoba county, with a few others from Winston, Lauderdale, and Noxubee. Our location has a lot to with that, as we are right on the edge of four counties.

In the reguad, calling us a Kemper County church is correct, but also a little misleading.

Any way, here's the map.
