Main Street United Methodist Church

Time to Celebrate the Bicentennial!

Main Street United Methodist Church begins its third century in 2001. Founded in 1801, we will be celebrating our 200th Anniversary this year and have scheduled some special events to mark the occasion.


Also known as Luke "the Evangelist." He was a much-traveled Greek, had a well-trained mind, excellent literary ability and marked reportorial ability. Luke was a kindly, evangelistic literary genius and First Century physician, who dedicated all that he had to Christ in his service to his fellow man. This Book of Acts is his second volume.

This window was given in loving memory of Samuel C. and Eureka Ashburn Oliver by their Children.
