Open Doors. Open Hearts. Open Minds.


Welcome, and thank you for visiting White Memorial United Methodist Church online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available.

We invite you to come worship with us. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.

Our Mission

We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth.

We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen with open minds,, and with our hearts to love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

UMW and other women from other churches spend their Friday mornings packing bags of food to send home to students at the local elementary school. 


Sunday School meets at 10:00 AM and Morning Worship Services 
are at 11:00 AM.  We have Sundy School classes for the young and the young at heart. We also have a children's program during the worship service.

Community Connections

Our church supports the local food pantry with donations of food and individuals time and talents. 


We offer a pre-school program for children ages 3-4. Contact Pam Linkous for more information and to register. 540-808-8595.

Members of White Memorial and other local churches support the local Food Pantry "Dale's Place"  In recent bad weather volunteers still come to help out.  A great partnership to help feed
the hungry in our Community. 

Joyce Kelley keeps things organized for the Food Pantry.

Message from the Pastor

An old pioneer traveled westward across the great plains until he came to an abrupt halt at the edge of the Grand Canyon. He gawked at the sight before him: a vast chasm one mile down, eighteen miles across and more than one hundred miles long! He gasped "Something must have happened here!"  A visitor to our world at Christmas time, seeing the lights, the decorations, the trees, the parades, the festivities, and the religious services, would also probably say, "Something must have happened here!" Indeed, something did happen. God came to our world on the first Christmas.

A new year brings the prospect of fresh possibility and promise, of goals and aspirations of renewal and growth. It is the opportunity to begin again. And we hope that the new year will be a happy one.

Knowing that each New Year will bring happiness, we also now it will have its ups and downs, its share of heartaches and sorrows. We hope and wish for the presence of God to be made apparent to us as a necessary compliment to the wish for happiness. Regardless of what may occur in the new year, it will be a happy year when the presence of God being with us is experienced. Happy New Year!

Grace and Peace, 

Re. Herb Williams
