On June 19, 2022, FUMC voted to Convey the Malloy Retreat Center to Orange County.
First United Methodist Orange believes that for Christians to bear fruit, they must have the opportunity to grow in their faith journey. The Marjorie H. Malloy Spiritual Enrichment Center offers a great place for Spiritual enrichment, fellowship, relaxation and a nice bed after spending the day doing mission work.
The Malloy Retreat Center was an extention campus located across the street from First United Methodist Church, the Stark Museum of Art, and the beautiful Orange Fire Department headquarters. It is just two blocks from the W. H. Stark House Museum and the historic First Presbyterian Church and just three blocks from the Frances Ann Lutcher Theatre, the river boardwalk, and Lamar State College-Orange. Other nearby attractions include Heritage House Museum, the beautiful Shangri-La Botanical Gardens and the Orange Depot Museum. Groups also enjoy the First United Methodist Church Prayer Garden, the beautiful Slade Chapel, and, for the more adventurous, airboat rides.
