Bridge Church

Are you searching for a quiet place to worship?

Feeling displaced?

Tired of all the wrangling, loud voices and discontentment?

Looking for a place of peace over the troubled waters of disaffiliation?

Elkton UMC can be that place.  We are your Bridge Church, where you can find vibrant worship, welcoming people and a non-judgmental environment.  A place to rest and find God’s comfort.  The people of Elkton UMC are waiting to be your partners as you journey forward. 

 As Joshua led the Israelites out of the wilderness and into the Promised Land, they too, were uncertain and afraid, yet God promised to remain with them. Churches in the conference are seeking to come alongside those left behind by disaffiliation, to serve as a bridge to support them as they discern what God has in store for them.

These Bridge Churches are United Methodist faith communities which are confident they will remain United Methodist. Bridge Churches will provide pastoral support, nurture, and opportunities for connection during this time of grief and transition, always in response to each individual’s needs, timing, and sense of God’s call. These congregations bring no expectation of church membership; rather they offer support based on the needs of each person and community. Such support may include:

We are a Bridge Church!

About Us

 The history of this church began in 1821 when the Elk Run Liberty
meeting House was built and supplied by Methodist preachers. A white frame church was built in 1894-1896 on this present location and called the Elkton Episcopal Church, South. In 1921 the church was
bricked and is now the Elkton United Methodist Church.
