Unwrapping God’s Greatest GiftUnder Wraps

 Advent will start on Sunday, November 30 and we will start an exciting new Advent Program; Under Wraps: The Gift We Never Expected. Prepared and piloted by The Woodlands United Methodist Church in Houston TX, this joyful program explores some of God’s unexpected qualities, presented over the four weeks of Advent. Just as the first wrapped gift beneath the Christmas tree marks the new season, so the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day signaled that God’s hope and salvation and redemption plan had come into the world. In Jesus, God gift-wrapped himself in human flesh and was born in a stable so he could come and live among us and offer us life and salvation that we could never gain on our own.
Join us this Advent as we unwrap God’s greatest gift, our Savior Jesus.
In addition to the Sermon Series Pastor Scott is offering two opportunities to join him for this study beginning Tuesday, December 2nd.

Perry Memorial United Methodist Church realizes that the future of our church and the Christian faith is not just the folks already in the pews, but those yet to be invited and welcomed into the worship of God and the fellowship of the Church. Perry Memorial is continuously working to develop the future of the Christian faith by exposing the community to the works of Jesus Christ through service and opportunities for worship. We as a congregation are firmly committed to the mission of The United Methodist Church; “To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”

Perry Memorial United Methodist Church is here for you. We are not just a church, we are a fellowship of believers coming together to support one another, hold eachother up, and work together to become the disciples that Christ has called us to be. We study the Word, practice what we learn and in the process grow together. May God richly bless you!

The House That Faith Built

Find a history that was written in 2007 to celebrate Perry Memorial United Methodist Church’s 50 years of spiritual growth in Shady Spring, West Virginia. These words spoken in 1964 are as true today as they were then;

“Today with humble gratitude to the Father of us all and grateful appreciation to all who in any way, have entered into our labors and brotherly love for the family of God everywhere. We are indeed proud of Perry Memorial United Methodist Church and extend to all of you a warm welcome to join our family of worshippers in any and all of our activities. We earnestly ask your prayers for our continued growth and influence to the betterment of our community.” Edna Starr, Celebration at the United Methodist Temple, Beckley WV, May 1964
