  • Centered in faithful and biblical worship of God, which is open to all people,
  • Marked by ongoing spiritual growth as followers of Jesus Christ, through generous love for one another and engagement in the means of grace,
  • Characterized by moving out in compassionate witness and service to others, in the power of the Holy Spirit, in order to demonstrate and make visible God’s kingdom, and to issue a gracious invitation for all to enter into new life.

We are Central United Methodist Church, located on the corners of Lewis & Beverly Streets in the beautiful Downtown Historic District of Staunton, VA.

Founded in 1797, we are the oldest continuing Methodist Congregation in Staunton and Augusta County.
