Powell Chapel has a rich history:

Powell Chapel United Methodist Church is located in the community of Flat Rock, so named because of a huge vein of rock on which it stands, in the north eastern part of Carroll County, four and one-half miles south of Villa Rica, Georgia. It is in the Winston Circuit, Atlanta-College Park District; North Georgia Conference.
The foundation of the Church dates back over a century to the year 1850, when the Reverend William Francis Spaight Powell, a Methodist minister, undertook the task of establishing a church, which had long been a dream of his. It was not long before the dream came true. The task was begun, and soon there stood beside the road, in a beautiful grove, a little log church.
In 1882, a new wooden structure was built to take the place of the old log building. This was a great improvement.
By faith, by prayer, by the great effort of a few, in 1952 four Sunday school rooms were built, the interior of the church remodeled and memorial windows were installed.
In the year 1957, another dream was to brick veneer the building. Plans were made, and on June 1st of that year the work was begun and in three months was completed. A beautiful little brick church stood, and the same still stands beside Flat Rock Road.
Constructing a home for their ministers was a dream that was only a dream for many, many years. In 1979, under the leadership of their present minister, Reverend Marvin G. Reynolds, construction of the parsonage was begun. It consists of two stories, with nine rooms and three baths. It is a beautiful brick building and is situated across the road from the church.
Well, by faith, from the log building to the completion of the parsonage, it was so done.
Then in September 28, 1992 ground breaking was held for a new Fellowship Hall that had been sorely needed for some time. A building approximately 40 feet by 72 feet was added alongside the existing building and was completed in time for the Annual Memorial Day Dinner on the fourth Sunday 1n April 1993.
The Church was very fortunate to have Bishop Lloyd Knox the Bishop of the North Georgia Conference and District Superintendent Charles Hoover along with Rev. Jimmy Drew our minister to consecrate our building on June 3, 1993.
Again it was the long hours of work, donations of many people and the help of Almighty God that made our dreams come true.
