Christ United Methodist Church (CUMC) sprang from a very humble beginning in 1898 with the start of a small Sunday School by Miss Eva Hubbard in Edgington Lane School House. Our first pastor, Rev. Joseph Lee, was appointed in 1902. The first church building was constructed in 1903 in Edgwood Park. The present church, located on National Road at Washington Avenue, was completed in 1959. Major remodeling was finished in 1994. Today, Christ United Methodist Church is a vibrant and growing congregation dedicated to making disciples of Jesus Christ of for the transformation of the world.
Our ministries are planned and implemented to help us and others grow
- richer in spirit,
- deeper in discipleship,
- warmer in fellowship,
- and broader in mission.
We participate actively in the Northern District and the West Virginia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church and are grateful for our Wesleyan heritage. We eagerly invite others to join us as we live out our lives together as the people of Christ United Methodist Church.
