Our Faith Community

Beckley Community United Methodist Church (UMC) is a newly formed faith community with deep historical roots and a long-standing footprint of ministry and service within our community. In the fall of 2020, the former congregations of First UMC and St. Mary’s UMC united in ministry to form a new faith community.

Drawing upon the faithful witness and spiritual strengths of these two former congregations, we are building a renewed congregational life of faithful witness through worship, study, and service. Together we are sowing, planting, and nurturing new seeds of Christian ministry and exploring new opportunities to serve Christ in our community and the world.

Beckley Community UMC is part of a collaborative ministry encompassing three local Churches to serve Beckley and surrounding communities. Together with Mabscott UMC and Sophia UMC we serve as Raleigh Shared Ministries. Churches of the West Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church.

We invite you to join us as we discover new pathways of spiritual life, opportunities to grow in our Christian faith and live into our vision to serve Christ in our community!
