About Us

About Our Church

Grace and Peace to you,

We are grateful that you found Powhatan United Methodist Church (PUMC) on-line. Please explore the wonderful options on our website and recognize how the Lord is working in and through this Body of Christ – since 1789. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are blessed with opportunities to spread the Good News in Powhatan and around the world. While God’s work is obvious in these words and pictures, we encourage you to check out our facilities in person. This community of faith is grace-filled, warm, and nurturing, waiting to welcome you with open arms. Come and worship with us on Sunday morning, our set-aside time to glorify and honor the Triune God of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Come and participate in our small groups throughout the week. Come, and grow with us. We look forward to greeting you in this holy space, where we are “Living as Christ’s disciples within our hearts and beyond our doors."

Lord Bless,
Pastor John
