Welcome to McKendree United Methodist Church! We are a small church in rural King William, VA. We’re always happy to see you, whether you’ve been part of our church family for decades or just visiting.
Worship begins at 9:30 each Sunday. Our services are traditional. We sing out of a hymn book, say the Lord’s prayer in unison every week and light altar candles at the beginning of our service.
You can dress casual or wear your favorite Sunday dress. We want everyone to be comfortable. During worship, we usually play a contemporary song, praise music or a country gospel. Our minister, Libby Hadley isn’t the only one leading worship. Members of the congregation read scripture and take on other roles during the service. Our children are encouraged to participate as acolytes, ushers, greeters and a few times a year, lead worship or treat us with dance, music or a skit. We have a special time during worship just for the kids. Lifting up prayer together is an important part of our worship. We have a talented pianist, Allen Macuno, a recent VCU music graduate, and on occasion, a small, enthusiastic choir.
Bible Study – On Wednesdays, we have a Bible Study at 10 AM in the Fellowship Hall. We have a church library with a large collection of religious themed and inspirational books, as well as fiction, children’s books and videos to check out.
Fellowship & Outreach – We enjoy being together for fellowship dinners and activities, such as our annual summer church picnic on the river, Easter Egg Hunt, Valentine’s Day celebrations, McKendree Kids’ movie nights, Vacation Bible School and Trunk or Treat.
Tuesday Art Group – Every week from 1 – 3 PM – Bring your own materials or use ours. We enjoy watercolor & acrylic painting, card making and other crafts. We have both beginners and experienced artists participating.
