DEPART TO SERVE
We invite you to become part of the exciting and vital ministry of Edenton United Methodist Church. Come grow with us in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Edenton United Methodist Church exists to be an open, caring congregation which accepts individuals of different backgrounds, empowers them for living in the 21st century, and provides spiritual strength and zeal for Christian service.
In 1808, fifteen years after Bishop Francis Asbury preached here, EUMC was officially founded. As the church grew, its location changed from Church and Oakum Streets in 1809, to Eden Street in 1857, to Broad Street in 1895, and finally, to Virginia Road in 1979. Our present Education Building was built in 1979, and our Sanctuary was completed in 1983. EUMC completed construction of a new section of the building in 2006, which more than doubled the size of the existing facilities. The new Family Life Center, commercial kitchen, youth room, day care wing and classrooms serve as a center for Christian discipleship in Chowan County. At Homecoming in October 2006, EUMC re-dedicated its existing facility and consecrated the new facility with the help of past and present District Superintendents.
