FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCHSlideshow

Winchester, VA

WE ARE ONE CHURCH WITH TWO LOCATIONS!

308 N. Braddock Street and 368 Apple Pie Ridge Road

The first is referred usually as our "downtown campus" where we have fellowship, worship services, and Sunday School. The last is usually referred as our "APR property" where we have movie nights, picnics, BBQs, or other outside events.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

"Hello Everyone!  Make a safe decision for yourself, and your family, regarding worship on Sunday, January 13th.  Right now, I'm planning to come in for both our 8:30 and 11am worship services.  I'll lead worship for whomever is able to come.  We'll post worship on Facebook Live at 11am.  I don't want any leaders, members, or staff to feel compelled to come in, but want to be open for anyone who is comfortable, interested, or in need of worship tomorrow.  If you are able to come in, and wish to help us clear the walks, that would be appreciated.  For further announcements, or updates, please watch Facebook and the FUMC website. 

Grace and Peace, Rev. Will White"

Transportation Ministry
We are looking for folks who would like to be a part of a transportation ministry. It would involve picking up riders for a Sunday School and 11:00a.m. service and taking them home after the service. The commitment would be for one Sunday every 8 weeks with the flexibility to trade with other drivers when scheduling conflicts arise. The drivers may use their own vehicle or the church van.
