Central United Methodist Church – Denton, North Carolina

Words from Pastor Richard:

This week we have lost a dear and trusted soldier of the faith, Billy Allison.  The visitation will be held at Briggs Funeral Home Thursday night, March 29, from 6-8 pm and the funeral will be Friday afternoon, March 30, at Central UMC at 2 pm with graveside to follow.  Online condolences can be made at

Out of respect for the church and our members who are grieving this week, we have decided to cancel the 7 pm evening services on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. However, you are encouraged to attend, if you are able, the Missional Network’s Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services being held at First United Methodist Church in Denton at  12 noon each day.  

Central UMC will still hold our annual sunrise service on Easter Sunday morning, April 1, at 7 am, this year at the Denton Town Cemetery.  Central UMC will still hold our Easter Egg Hunt for all children on the church grounds beginning at 9:45 am, and our regular worship service will take place at 11 am.  We hope you can join us as we celebrate the Risen Christ!

By God’s Good Grace,
   Pastor Richard

We Welcome you…..

open-door-open-haert-methodist_logo1Following a history dating back to 1913, a faithful congregation of Denton Methodist Church built the beautiful present day Central United Methodist Church in 1956. Under the able leadership of Rev. Leon Stubbs, the church was built and consecrated on November 4, 1956. The debt was fully retired and a formal dedication service was held April 25, 1956.

Central UMC’s congregation is committed to the opportunities and challenges of being a witness to Jesus Christ in a multitude of ministries and community outreach programs both locally and to the world at large. Among this website, you will find information about Central’s Preschool Program, Church Groups, Sunday School classes, and an array of many other mission and outreach opportunities.

Central UMC invites all who seek to learn, live and grow as followers of Jesus Christ to join us. Central UMC is filled with the love of Christ, friendly smiles and welcoming hearts.

We hope you and your family will visit us soon…we would love to meet you!
