A Word About Us

Central United Methodist Church's history is a story of change -- change in name of local area, from Rocky Ridge to Manchester to South Richmond to Richmond; change in name of group from Methodist Society, to Methodist Episcopal Church, to Methodist Episcopal Church South, to Methodist Church, to United Methodist Church; change in location and name of meeting place from a private home on Seventh Street between Perry and Porter Streets to Manchester Metting House at Tenth and Perry Streets, later called Old Plank Church; to Manchester M. E. Church on Ninth Street between Hull and Decatur Streets to Central M. E. Church South at Thirtheenth and Porter Streets, to Central Methodist Church, to Central United Methodist Church -- the present name and location. 

At Central we believe in "Making God's Love Real!"
