The Alabama-West Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church includes churches in the West Alabama counties of southern Bibb, Greene, Hale, Marengo, Perry and Sumter. Some are part of the mass disaffiliation resulting from liberalization policies adopted by the General Conference.

In the most recent disaffiliation, Marietta and Oak Grove from the Demopolis district, joined six other churches to leave the denomination.

Now the right-wing Alabama Supreme Court has ruled against 44 congregations in south Alabama and the Florida panhandle that filed a lawsuit against United Methodist Bishop David Graves and the conference.

Reed had determined the congregations could not leave the conference. The churches had requested a temporary restraining order, but the state high court agreed with Reed ruling it was an internal church matter and the court did not have jurisdiction.
