The Methodist Church holds an important place in both the religious and educational history of Hanover County. The relocation of Randolph-Macon College from Boydton, Mecklenburg County, to Ashland in 1868, gave a special impetus to the growth of the Methodist population in Hanover. The college is affiliated closely with the Methodist Church and it continues to be known as the oldest, Methodist affiliated college in operation in the United States.
What We Believe
Several Methodist churches were established during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in Hanover. One of these was Kenwood United Methodist Church, built in the 1890’s.
Tell us about yourself and begin your journey connecting with our community. Renovations over many decades has removed many of the original Queen Anne architectural features. Despite its many changes over the years, Kenwood UMC continues to stay very active with the community, including Randolph Macon College, and is the only church still remaining in the area known as the village of Elmont.
Our church mission is to ignite a passion to follow Jesus.
“The church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit to continue the task of reaching the lost and discipling the saved, helping them become fully devoted followers of Christ.”

From our blog
I have two great passions: one is to build the Church of Jesus Christ and the other is to lift the lives of people and help them fulfil their potential in life
I have been going to this church my whole life and it is such a blessing to me! I am so blessed to be able to attend Grace and be a part of the amazing things that God is doing.
Me and my partners have found our relationship with this team to be a very satisfying and mutually beneficial experience.
