About Us Now

Midway UMC is a medium-sized church with programs designed to help people of all ages grow strong in the faith and in their love for the world created by a loving God. You are welcome to visit with us on our website and, of course, to visit with us during one of our Sunday morning worship services or at any of the other programs you see on this website. Thanks!

Where We Came From

Since a group of faithful Christians deeded some land in 1828 “on the west side of the public road leading from Salem to Lexington,” God has been worshipped and the community and world served at Midway UMC. For over 185 years, Midway UMC has been clear about its call from God to support the faith of its members, to provide for opportunities for salvation to its neighbors, and to support the families and the needs of the community and the world.

What was once a brush arbor is now a beautiful sanctuary, a fellowship hall and kitchen space, an educational building, and a Christian Fellowship Center built in 2002.

We believe God is still calling us to help in building the kingdom of God. We continue to reach beyond ourselves and to take God’s love beyond our church’s walls. We pray for one another, for our neighbors and the world, and work to provide help and hope to the spiritually and physically needy among us.

We would love for you to join in God’s mission to the world with us!
