Methodist congregation calls it quits

PENDLETON — A few years ago, the members of Pendleton’s United Methodist Church sorrowfully walked away from their 113-year old house of worship. The elegant stone church had become something of a money pit that consumed the congregation’s resources. Moisture had infiltrated a leaky roof into the sanctuary’s walls.
