OUR HISTORY

The United Methodist Church has been a part of the Uniontown community for over 180 years!  The history of our church traces back to 1823.  In the early days of Uniontown, people gathered in private homes for worship.  It was in 1820 that Congregational and Lutheran churches were well enough established to commence building a church in 1820.  It is believed that there has been some methodist activity before that time, but the earliest recorded history dates back to 1823. The Methodists, Evangelists and the Episcopals worked cooperatively in the early days and sometimes even shared their buildings for worship.

 

The Evangelical and Methodist Episcopal Church was built in 1857 at the corner of Church and Northdale Streets in Uniontown.  The Evangelicals and Methodists shared this building.  They would alternate weeks of using the church and share all expenses.  However, the Evangelicals were unsuccessful at trying to maintain a following in Uniontown and the Methodists used the church solely after the Evangelical following folded.

The Methodist Episcopal church was built in 1887 on Edison Street.  Electricity was installed to this church in 1913.  This building was used until 1969 when the current building was constructed.

In 1968, the current church building was constructed.  The piece of land that the church is built on was previously a barn and a house and was purchased for $20,000.  The service of consecration was held on April 13,1969.

In 1996, the church had undergone a major expansion project.  This construction included a new fellowship hall, new kitchen, more classrooms, and remodeling of the Sanctuary.

In September 2010, The United Methodist Church of Uniontown started a new project to build a new storage shed in the rear parking lot.  Many members of the congregation helped out with building this new shed.
