Please welcome our new minister:

Rev. Ellen Spruill


We welcome to our family Rev. Ellen Spruill.  Rev. Spruill is a Greensboro native and has a blended family with five children, four grandchildren and two great grands!  She is a graduate on North Carolina A & T State University with a degree in Industrial Technology and a master’s degree in Christian Education from Pfeiffer University.  She has served as a local pastor since 2008, being appointed as Associate Pastor to Mt. Tabor-Celia Phelps Charge and then in 2016 as associate Pastor to St. John’s UMC.  Her passion lies in serving God through ministry with the people of God through worship, study, prayer, and missions to the world.  Matthew 19:26, Proverbs 3:5-6, and Philippians 4: 12-13 are her favorite scriptures.  When time permits, she enjoys spending time with her family, sporting events, and being out in nature savoring all of God’s creation.

Rev. Spruill is also currently employed as a Funeral Director with Hanes Lineberry Funeral Home.

While the pandemic continues to interfere with life as we know it, Rev. Spruill is eager to be among us, ministering to us and being with us as is physically allowed.

Our congregation at Newlyn Street United Methodist Church is excited to continue the work God began in us alongside Reverend Spruill.
