““My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come. “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”” ‭‭John‬ ‭13:33-35‬ ‭NIV‬‬
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:1-3‬ ‭NIV‬‬
Thank you Cris for your service!❤️

Our Story

What We Are About We are a congregation that is passionate about improving lives, lifting up our community, and connecting all people with God. We love working side-by-side with other local churches to affect the community for the better. We also feel that we have a unique ministry because we follow the very practical model of Methodism: to meet people where they are, make faith relevant to everyday lives, and be concerned for the wellbeing of individuals: physically, emotionally, and spiritually!

Our Beginnings Area Methodists began meeting in Abingdon in 1832, when a local preacher named Hiram Palmer began visiting the log cabins of families in the Abingdon area. By 1833 an organized society of seven members were meeting at the Swarts log cabin. The first quarterly meeting was held in the home of Jacob and Bethsheba West in 1834 with Peter Cartwright serving as the presiding elder. In 1839 the congregation moved to the newly built frame schoolhouse on the northwest corner of Jefferson and Pearl Streets, worshiping there until about 1847-48. At that time a comfortable church was built on the northeast corner of Washington and Jackson street. But by 1869, the congregation had outgrown its building and began worshiping in the chapel of Hedding College where it worshipped for seven years.

During 1867-68, the congregation built a two-story frame building which was considered a handsome edifice. The building stood on the northeast corner of Latimer and Washington Streets. In 1898 a Lyon and Healy pipe organ was purchased. Because of the architecture of the building, members decided to build a new building instead of remodeling the old one. Much of the old building was used in the new structure which was dedicated December 25, 1898. The bell in the steeple was hung in 1899.

Down through our history: Everyday people, who grew up in the faith, have done extraordinary work for God. In Abingdon and the surrounding area United Methodists have been growing the Kingdom of God for very nearly two centuries and we look forward to the next 200 years!
