Parishioners of the Solley United Methodist Church lament that the community is growing without them, and they are praying that peaches might help. A peach festival, to be precise, that would attract new members.Members of the church on Solley Road -- the majority of whom are elderly -- hope the festival, scheduled for Aug. 19, will tap into the area's renewed vitality and help offset the "graying" of the congregation.When the church, founded in 1873 as Marley Methodist Protestant Church, first moved from Marley Neck Road to the small, white building with the wooden door at its present location, the Solley Road community was a quiet farming and residential neighborhood.
