Message from the Pastor

As the calendar turns to the month of February, our thoughts turn toward Valentine's day. We begin to think about how we can express our love for that special person in our lives. Gifts such as flowers, candy, a special dinner, or a ring are often given to the one who holds a special place in our lives.

But what kind of gift do we give to God? Jesus loves each one of us as if there were only one of us to love. When the difficulties in your life feel as if they're closing in on you, remember to tap into God's love by spending quality time with your creator. Bring your prayers and petitions to God and your problems will pale when seen in the glory of God's presence. 

We have a continual choice to make each day of our lives. We can seek God's love and presence to help us with short prayers concerning the present issue or we can face despair by relying on ourselves or human help.

This Valentine's day spend quality time with the One who loves you unconditionally and who can make your joy full and complete. Keep your eyes and heart on Jesus, who never stops loving you.

Grace and peace,

Rev. Herb Williams

Our Mission


Community Connections

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.

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.

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

Neither rain, nor heat, nor a virus could deter the volunteers of Dale's Place from carrying out their duties during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Members of White Memorial UMC work alongside others in their masks and gloves to assure that clients receive their food on a monthly basis. The staff has had to make changes to staffing and the days and hours of service, but the services have been ongoing during the months of the pandemic.


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.
