Experience the Ride of a Lifetime with God!

We’ll lead kids on an exciting white-water rafting adventure on Rolling River Rampage!

We’ll learn that Jesus is with us all the time, even in rough water rapids

Along the river, children discover that life with God is an adventure full of wonder and surprise, and that they can trust God to be with them through anything.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. (Isaiah 43:2, CEB)

“Follow Me” by Tonya Mills

Follow Me

At our recent Perry Church Picnic we had a Special Guest join us by the lakeshore. She started with a blank canvas, then while listening to a few of her favorite hymns she began to paint. We all watched with anticipation as our guest, Tonya Mills created – “Follow Me.” We appreciate Tonya joining us by the lakeshore to create this special gift to our Perry family and our community.

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 each other 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 First 50 Years
of Perry Memorial United Methodist Church  1957 – 2007
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
