Winter's Chapel UMC

Winter's Chapel United Methodist Church


The purpose and mission of the church is to reach people with the good news that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior.


When Winters Chapel was started in the late 1860s, the Rev. W.A. Doge preached his sermons under a brush arbor. Mr. Jeremiah Winters, the person for whom the church is named, moved to the community during this period. The church is currently a multi-cultural, multi-generational congregation with a blended worship service.
