About Ward's Chapel United Methodist Church
Our congregation had its beginnings in the early days of Methodism with the first record of a preacher at Ward's in 1790. Services were held from 1802 - 1845 at the historic New Tavern. Then a log chapel, built on a lot given by Robert and Mary Ward, was the meeting place of the congregation until replaced by the present stone building dedicated on May 30, 1871. 

Beginning in the early plantation days our congregation has enjoyed a close fellowship of committed Christian service. Past members with the guidance from devoted circuit riders and ministers have given us the rich heritage of today's church. From the Pre-School Program to the 70 Plus activities, our congregation seeks to make the Good News of Jesus Christ real for people of all ages. 

In the atmosphere of love and friendliness may you be inspired by worship and drawn closer to God. Our cordial invitation is extended to all who are looking for a church home.
