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

The Easter season is upon us as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This year we celebrate Easter in the midst of the corona virus which is unnerving our country and the world. Governments are attempting to meet the needs of their people while families are struggling with illness, finance and with what to do with their children and grandchildren as schools are closed.

As we celebrate the Risen Christ's victory over death, we are also celebrating God's great love for us which was strong enough to defeat death. This same Divine love will help us deal with this pandemic. Chris Hall, President of Renovare, says God's possesses the breathtaking capacity to transform difficult situations into unexpected openings for goodness, compassion and mercy.

As we work through the uncertain world of the corona virus, let us be open to the strength and guidance of the Holy Spirit. God is all powerful and all knowing. Nothing surprises God and there is nothing God cannot deal with in a manner that will help us and glorify Christ.

Whatever comes our way during this pandemic, let us remember God is in control and is the final decision maker. And let us ask ourselves what is God offering you and me in the arena of the corona virus?

May God truly bless you this Easter as you celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior.

God's Blessings,

Rev. Herb Williams
