Founding and Early Years

Our history dates back to the founding of Willington United Methodist Church in 1950. A small group of faithful individuals gathered with a shared vision to establish a place of worship and spiritual nourishment in the Willington community. Their commitment and determination laid the foundation for what would become a vibrant and thriving church.

Expansion and Growth

As the years passed, our church experienced significant growth and expansion. The increasing number of members and the growing needs of the community led to the construction of our current church building, completed in 2000. This expansion provided a dedicated space for worship, fellowship, and ministry, enabling us to better serve the needs of our congregation and the surrounding area.

Community Engagement and Outreach

Throughout our history, community engagement and outreach have been integral to our church’s identity. Our belief in living out our faith through service has driven us to initiate and participate in various outreach programs. From local initiatives to global missions, we have sought to make a positive impact and extend God’s love beyond our church walls.

Celebrating Milestones

Our history is marked by significant milestones that have shaped our church community. We have celebrated anniversaries, dedicated new spaces, welcomed new pastors, and rejoiced in the spiritual growth of our members. These milestones remind us of the faithfulness of God and inspire us to continue our journey with hope and gratitude.
