George Washington Barrett (1873-1956) served the Gray Circuit (then in the North Georgia Conference) of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, from late 1917 to late 1919.  The physical plant of the Gray Church has grown and changed since then.  The first addition was to the back of the now Historic Sanctuary.  The front part of the building dates to 1915.  The back of it dates to the 1940s.  The brick Youth Fellowship Hall has been in existence since the 1960s.

The congregation has adapted two houses for parish use (one for the Administrative Offices) and erected new buildings across the street from the Historic Sanctuary and Youth Fellowship Hall.  The relative positions of the new worship space, the Historic Sanctuary, and the Administrative Offices is obvious below, with the Administrative Offices to the right.

Plans for a new space intended just for the public worship of God exist.  The new sanctuary will sit next to the current main worship space, the family life center.
